Stéphane Phavorin Biography


Stéphane Phavorin portrait

Stéphane Phavorin started his classical dance studies at the same time as his musical notation and piano studies, entering the ballet school of the Ballet de l’Opéra de París at the age of 14. He studied with teachers such as Daniel Franck, Gilbert Mayer and Serge  Golovine, as well as Jacqueline Fynnaert.

Once he finished both fields of study (piano and dance), he went on to form part of the Ballet de l’Opéra de París, under Rudolf Nureyev as director. He rose to become Principle Dancer.

With the Ballet de l’Opéra de París he performed some of the great roles within the classical repertoire: Baron von Rothbart in Swan Lake; the Prince in  The Nutcracker; Espada in Don Quixote, Bernard and Beranger in Raymonda (all those as Nureyev choreographies), as well as James in La Sylphide by Pierre Lacotte. He interpreted a series of roles in neoclassical-style choreographies by Jérôme Robbins, Paul Taulor, Mac Millan, Roland Petit and Serge Lifar. He would also come to work with contemporary-style choreographers, such as Twyla Tharp, William Forsythe, Pina Baush, Mats Ek, Jirí Kylián, Wayne Macgregor, Angelin Preljocaj, Nacho Duato, Richard Tanner, Lar Lubovitch  and Mark Morris.

He won the Silver Medal both in the Paris International Dance Contest and in the Maya Plissétskaia St. Pertersburg  International Contest. For some years he formed part of the Legris Loudieres et leurs Etoiles dance group, directed by Manuel Legris.

On finalising his career as dance interpreter, he immersed himself in the world of teaching, working with both professionals and amateurs alike, as well as with dance schools and giving master classes.

Since 2013, and in addition to his work as Ballet Master at Spain’s Compañía Nacional de Danza (CND) and at l’Opera di Roma, he has  also been working as guest teacher at companies, such as the Ballet de l’Opéra de París itself, The Royal Ballet of the Covent Garden Royal Opera House, the HET National Ballet of Amsterdam, the Vienna Opera Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet and Ballet Teatro alla Scala in Milan, among others.

Sofía Coppola entrusted him with the choreography of her 2015 production of La Traviata for the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.

Recently, William Forsythe commissioned him with the restaging of his piece The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude for soloists of the Ballet de l’Opéra de París, as well as for the Conservatoire Supérieur de Danse de Paris.
