See behind-the-scenes at the Paris Opera Ballet School as the ‘Petit Rats’ prepare to perform at the Palais Garnier, captured by our photographer, Pascal Le Segretain…

As the Paris Opera Ballet School celebrates its 300th anniversary in 2013, our photographer, Pascal Le Segretain, prepares for his next big challenge – creating a behind-the-scenes masterwork of the school through his participation in our Editorial Fellowship project.

His project follows the in-house ballet school, the 'Petits Rats', over the course of a school year, culminating with a rehearsal and a public performance at the Palais Garnier theatre.

Pascal is one of three recipients of the inaugural Getty Images Editorial Fellowship, a program designed to reward and recognise the very best photojournalists on our team. And to develop on the expertise and experience we offer to our clients.

Every day, all over the world, our staff photographers confront the human condition – documenting our struggles and triumphs, our moments of weakness and strength – so that all aspects of life can be depicted within the publications our customers represent.
