A night at the Opera

A nod to the theme behind this season's inspiration for Aubade: spotlight on the most breathtaking operas and ballets.

Carmen. Provocative, incandescent, audacious, Carmen remains one of the greatest heroines of opera. Seville's traditional colours of red and black, the famous "if you don't love me, I love you" are regularly readapted and have inspired the Fièvre Andalouse line. This line evokes Spanish passion in its most powerful form.

Swan Lake. With ethereal white feather tutus and unforgettable music, the tragic love story between Odile and Prince Siegfried makes this ballet truly legendary. Little ballerinas everywhere dream of dancing it.

Madame Butterfly. Set against a backdrop of Japanese social conventions and family values, this story of a geisha girl who falls in love with an American soldier is one of the world's most popular operas.

La Traviata. The story of Violetta, a fallen young woman who earns redemption through love and sacrifices herself to protect her loved one, is undoubtedly Verdi's most popular opera. The line Aube Amoureuse was inspired by the original story of La Traviata. Lingerie classicism is adorned with rich colour stories. Leavers de Calais lace, the brand's timeless signature, is available in Violetta and Black, inviting seduction. The devil is in the details, with subtle openings on the skin, an elegant picot braid and its satin bow.

La Bayadère. Updated by Rudolf Nureyev, this ballet has become one of the jewels of the Paris Opera’s repertoire. It tells the story of the ill-fated loves of a dancer and a noble warrior, set against the backdrop of an imaginary India. If you have never seen it, the Paris Opera is set to perform it at Christmas.

Tosca. Legend has it that Sarah Bernhardt was Puccini's inspiration for the singer Tosca. With lyricism, intrigue and tragedy, the 19th century Roman adventure is an absolute delight.

Romeo and Juliet. Prokofiev’s score and Nureyev's choreography transcend this play by William Shakespeare. Due to be performed in Paris in a few months' time.

Aida. Verdi whisks us away to the time of the Pharaohs, where a general is in love with a slave named Aida. But alas, the King's daughter steps in and does her utmost to vanquish their passion.

The Magic Flute. Mozart's ultimate opera tells the story of a prince's quest to find his beautiful princess. He comes across a mysterious Queen of the Night along the way... A truly captivating tale about a rite of passage.

So how would you like to travel to Seville, humming the theme tune to Carmen as you show off the flamboyant embroidery of the Fièvre Andalouse line? Could you become your own Violetta in the black and purple colours of the Aube Amoureuse lingerie? Would you be the lovestruck Juliet in the Cœurs Enlacés set, or the beautiful Aida in the embroidered À la Folie lingerie? Or perhaps you will become the intriguing queen of the night in the sublime black embroidered lace of Reine de la Nuit?
