This ballet – a tribute to the legendary Coco Chanel – is a collaboration between choreographer Yuri Possokhov and composer Ilya Demutsky.

Svetlana Zakharova performs the title role in a story that explores Chanel’s connections to the world of dance through Sergei Diaghilev and his ballets ‘Le Train Bleu’ (1924) and ‘Apollon Musagète’ (1929).

More than eighty costumes have been designed exclusively for the ballet by CHANEL Creative Studio headed by Virginie Viard, creative director of CHANEL Fashion House.
