A memorable evening for Vacheron Constantin guests took place Wednesday, May 21st,  at the Opéra Bastille in honour of Brigitte Lefèvre, Director of Ballet at the Paris National Opera, for the past nearly 20 years, who is preparing to hand over to choreographer, Benjamin Millepied.

Sponsor of the Paris National Opera since 2007, the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin naturally partnered this exceptional evening organised under the auspices of the Association pour le rayonnement de l’Opéra national de Paris (AROP – Friends of the Paris Opera and Ballet). After the performances of Le Palais de Cristal and Daphnis & Chloé , Juan-Carlos Torres, CEO of Vacheron Constantin, reaffirmed the watch Manufacture’s attachment to the world of arts and culture and ballet in particular because aside from its support of the Paris National Opera, Vacheron Constantin also partners the New York City Ballet, the Royal School of Ballet in London and the Ballet du Grand Théâtre in Geneva.
