The Fedora Prizes

FEDORA has established two Prizes, the FEDORA - GENERALI Prize for Opera, for new opera creations, and the FEDORA - VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet, for new ballet creations that are awarded to promising teams of co-producing partners and promising artists who collaborate on the creation of new opera or ballet co-productions.
These prizes lead the way in identifying the future talents in opera and ballet.

Van Cleef & Arpels

Prize for Ballet

We are delighted about the collaboration with High Jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels who shares our vision and who supports the FEDORA – VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet, awarding new ballet creations of excellence.

Founded in 1906 at Paris’ Place Vendôme, the High Jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels has remained faithful to a highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, enchantment, artistic sensibility and poetry. Its collections have notably been influenced by dance, with the emblematic ballerina clips born in the 1940s. This inter-disciplinary dialogue was reinforced by a decisive encounter with George Balanchine. In 1967 in New York, the well-known choreographer presented the ballet Jewels, inspired by the emeralds, rubies and diamonds he had admired in Van Cleef & Arpels’ Fifth Avenue boutique. Today, these cultural affinities endure in new collaborations between the Maison and the world of dance. The FEDORA – Van Cleef & Arpels Prize for Ballet symbolizes the Maison’s constant commitment to creativity and bears witness to its support for choreographic art, by encouraging new talents.
