Éric Vu-An and Le Ballet de l’Opéra Grand Avignon
Éric Vu-An was appointed director at the Le Ballet de l’Opéra Grand Avignon in 1997. As director, he choreographed several ballets such as Ivresses of Dionysus, Walpurgisnacht Ballet from Faust by Gounod, and a version of Coppélia he created in March 2004.
Le Ballet de l’Opéra Grand Avignon operates in an opera house called The Opéra d’Avignon, located in Avignon, France. The opera house has existed for almost two hundred years, with its first performance in 1825. Though the original opera house was destroyed in a fire in 1846, a new one was built in 1847 and designed by architects Léon Feuchère and Théodore Charpentier.
