“C’est avec un grand plaisir et honneur que je vous remercie et que j’accepte votre proposition et vous dit à très bientôt. En espérant être utile à la mémoire de Genia”

Eric Vu-An


With these words, Maestro Eric Vu-An accepted the nomination as Honorary Member of the “Evgenij Polyakov” Association proposed by President Silvia Brioschi and unanimously approved by the Board of Directors at the meeting of November 6, 2021, with the following motivation:

Eric Vu-An, great international étoile, choreographer and artistic director of the Ballet Nice Méditerranée, a figure of a very strong human and artistic personality, always connoted by original vivacity and strength of thought, brings, as an incomparable contribution to the aims pursued by the “Evgenij Polyakov” Association, the concrete demonstration of how even an artist of the highest importance can and wants to keep alive the high sense of gratitude and acknowledgment towards Maestro Polyakov and offer his strong and important commitment, as a precious guarantee to ensure that the art of the Maestro would not be forgotten.
