The language of ballet

French is considered the language of ballet.  Many of the terms and steps in ballet come from the French language.  King Louis XIV of France loved ballet.  He established the first official school of ballet, known today as the Paris Opera Ballet.  The names of the steps created by King Louis are still used today. 

Palace Opera Ballet is showing some of the finest performances in Australia. One of them is Giselle.  Giselle, ou Les Wilis is a ballet in two acts with a libretto by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Théophile Gautier, music by Adolphe Adam, and choreography by Jean Coralli andJules Perrot. The librettist took his inspiration from a poem by Heinrich Heine. 

The ballet tells the story of a peasant girl named Giselle whose ghost, after her premature death, protects her lover from the vengeance of a group of evil female spirits called the Wilis. Giselle was first presented by the Ballet du Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique at the Salle Le Peletier in Paris, France, on 28 June 1841.

Enjoy a night of opera and ballet to celebrate that je ne sais quoi.  It'll take you away from a busy day.

French High Tea

With innate sense of style and sophistication, the French elevate even the simple act of taking tea to an art form.  From the delightful tea salons dotting every Parisian arrondissement to tea served at outdoor cafés nestled in the, hills of Provence, it is wonderful knowing the elegant art and essence of French tea.

According to reknown letter-writer, Madame de Sévigné (1626 to 1696), tea first arrived in Paris in 1636 (22 years before it appeared in England) and quickly became popular among the aristocracy.  


Marie-Antoinette took tea all the time and it was a French woman, the Marquise de la Sablière, who initiated the fashion of adding milk to tea. "Madame de la Sablière took her tea with milk, as she told me the other day, because it was to her taste" reported Madame de Sévigné. The English delighted in this "French touch" and immediately adopted it.

Served in centuries-old salons, out-of-the-way cafés, and in charming restaurants and smart homes throughout France, whether it's tea taken poolside at the Hôtel Ritz or a Sunday afternoon tea served fireside in a cozy apartment in the 6th arrondissement, what distinguishes each one is the individual, stylish touches that make no two teas alike. 

Mint tea and Moroccan pastries served in a former mosque, elaborate teas taken in a grand hotel, tea enjoyed en famille in a simple loft kitchen, breakfast tea served at the historic Café des Deux Magots - all of these and more can be found happening in beautiful France.

Of course, French tea would not be complete without a selection of pâtisserie - the unique pastries of France.  Recipes for the most popular French tea pastries and savories include Tarte Tatin, the famous upsidedown apple tart; Financiers, miniature almond cakes; Honey Madeleines; Fougasse, a flatbread with olives; and Zucchini Quiche.

Le Style will be hosting a French High Tea, or L'Heure du Thé event in Melbourne and Sydney this spring.  The event will be beautiful and we will announce the finer details by the end of May.  Stay tuned to our websites and social networks.
