While Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo will delight dance lovers with Romeo et Juliette at the Mahalia Jackson Theater, a companion exhibition of behind-the scenes photographs at the French Quarter's Angela King Gallery will take visitors on an intimate backstage tour.
 Monaco-born Alice Blangero takes us Inside les Ballets de Monte-Carlo as she captures the innermost moments of the company's work. While some of the photos focus on dancers waiting in the wings or backstage during a performance, most of them show the dancers during everyday rehearsals.​​

Photographer, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo

Born in Monaco in 1979, Alice Blangero first became interested in the art of portraiture photography before moving to Paris between 2005 and 2010 to immerse herself in the world of musicians, actors and artists.
In 2010, she had her first collaboration with Jean-Christophe Maillot for the centenary celebrations of the Russian Ballet. It was through this project that she discovered ballet as an artistic medium whose goals of portraying emotion and artistic sensitivity aligned with her own desires for her work.

From 2011 on, she continued to work closely with Jean-Christophe Maillot and the company for which she now serves as official photographer.
