This 2014 filmed adaptation by François Roussillon inspired by José Martinez’s three-act ballet Les enfants de Scaramouche, a choreography on music by Darius Milhaud that premiered in 2010, highlights the incredible talents of the young students of the Paris National Opera’s Dance School. Roussillon reframes Martínez’s work within a larger story of a boy named Enzo who dreams of becoming a ballet dancer étoile. He and his young friends at the Nanterre School take over the stage of the Palais Garnier, dancing the story of Scaramouche with a carefree excitement that captures the heart and delights the eyes.
