Opera Garnier is one of the most beautiful Opera in the world. Now, imagine you see it full of flowers and wonderful gowns.
Bal de L’x is a prestigious evening organized every year, usually in the spring by the Commission of the Alumni Association of the “École polytechnique”. This amazing event dates back from 1879 and its goal, which has not changed since then, is charity.
The stairs are beautiful by itself but as you can see on pictures they are filled with flowers. I can say, I have never seen something so beautiful like this. There are few options you can chose for attending the ball, if you want to make a dinner, spectacle or just a ball. This is the event plan:
19h30 : Ballet “En Sol”
20h05 : Intermission
20h25 : Ballet “La Valse”
20h40 : Intermission
21h00 : Ballet “Boléro”
21h25 : End of spectacle
