Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal was founded in 1957 by Ludmilla Chiriaeff. Conductor and composer Michel Perrault served as the organization's first music director.
Since its creation, Les Grands Ballets has performed a broad range of dance, ranging from classics to major contemporary work. Under the direction of Chiriaeff and Fernand Nault (1965-1973), Brian Macdonald (1974-1977) and Lawrence Rhodes (1990-1999), the institution fostered the development of such notable artists as James Kudelka, Édouard Lock and Ginette Laurin.
From 1970 to 1972, the company acquired international renown with Nault's popular dance adaptation of "Tommy", the rock opera by the British rock group "The Who". The company also accumulated a diverse repertoire representing the best in traditional and contemporary ballet and modern dance, performing works by such renowned choreographers as John Butler, Lar Lubovitch, Hans van Manen, Nacho Duato and Paul Taylor. It also built a notable collection of ballets by the Russo-American master George Balanchine and significant works revived from the era of the Diaghilev Ballets Russes, among them Petrouchka, La Chatte and L'Après-midi d'un faune.
