Born in Palermo, Abbagnato started dancing at 4 years old, and at 12 she moved to Monte Carlo to enroll in the dance school of Marika Bresobrasova. At 13, she toured Europe with Roland Petit’s The Sleeping Beauty, in the role of Aurora as a child.She was then admitted, after a private audition, to the École de Danse of the Paris Opera as a fellowship student.
In 1996, at the age of 18, Abbagnato graduated and joined the corps de ballet of the Opera, where she made a rapid ascent: Coryphée in 1999, Sujet in 2000, Premiere Danseuse in 2001 and Étoile in March 2013.
