2019 is our 50th anniversary and we are championing some of the people who help make Scottish Ballet a great place to work. Each week we will introduce you to a different career at Scottish Ballet and the person behind it.

Rimbaud Patron was born in Grenoble, France and trained at National Conservatory of Paris, Paris Opera Ballet School, Boulonge Conservatory Paris and English National Ballet School. He joined Scottish Ballet in 2012 and was promoted to First Artist in 2016. Rimbaud is also our Artist in Residence, Photographer. 

To celebrate World Photography Day, we're sharing some of the beautiful images he has taken – from exclusive, never before seen images, to rehearsal shots and what you see on stage.
