We’re already incredibly excited about the fact that New York City Ballet principal Robert Fairchild has a starring role in Christopher Wheeldon‘s new stage production of An American in Paris—which debuts this November à Paris. But a new set of photos is getting us even more revved up.
Opposite Fairchild’s Jerry Mulligan (the role played by Gene Kelly in the 1951 film) will be Royal Ballet first artist Leanne Cope as Lise, and the duo will surely light up the Théâtre du Châtelet stage. Just look at the chemistry in these images by Sylvain Gripoix!
