Stéphane Phavorin

First dancer of Paris Opera

Stéphane Phavorin received his dance training at the Paris Opera Ballet School with the most great teachers, and simultaneously studied classical piano at the Nice Conservatory and in Rueil-Malmaison. During his 25-year career with the Paris Opéra Ballet, rising through the ranks to premier danseur,
he danced the work of many great contemporary choreographers including Pina Bausch, William Forsythe, Mats Ek, Twyla Tharp, Jiri Kilian, and Wayne McGregor. His classical repertoire included leading characters from the ballets of Rudolf Nureyev; « Rothbart » in Swan Lake, the “Prince » in Casse Noisette, « Tybalt » in Romeo and Juliet, as well as other classical roles such as « James » in the romantic ballet La Sylphide by Pierre Lacotte. Mr. Phavorin has received Paris Opéra’s AROP prize, as well as silver medals at International Dance Competitions in both Paris and St. Petersburg.
