Béjart Ballet Lausanne
EFG became the Swiss national partner of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne (BBL) in 2018. EFG and BBL share the same values and drive to succeed.
BBL was founded in 1987 by Maurice Béjart, who wanted to bring the world of ballet to a wider audience. Today, BBL is one of the most famous ballet companies in the world and is regarded as a symbol of Swiss excellence. Artistic Director Gil Roman and his 40 dancers share Béjart’s passion for the dance and the creation, and perform all over the world at important events.
BBL Lausanne is one of the few companies able to fill vast spaces such as the NHK Hall in Tokyo, the Kremlin State Palace in Moscow, Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens, the Palais des Congrès de Paris, Forest National in Brussels or the Patinoire de Malley-Lausanne.
Béjart Ballet have opened their doors once more. For more information about the new season’s programme visit www.bejart.ch. Keep up with daily activities on their social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
