production & diffusion

To give the productions designed by the theatre a longer lifespan, the Production Department has a policy of co-production with a number of opera houses in France and abroad, and offers a number of existing productions for hire.

Il Barbiere di Siviglia

Rossini

 

Laurent Pelly signs a judicious and creative staging, where the characters evolve like notes out of the imagination of Rossini

Dialogues des carmelites

Poulenc

Voted "Best Show of the Year" by critics and acclaimed by audiences, Olivier Py's production offers a timeless, deeply moving version of Poulenc's masterpiece.

Pelleas et Melisande

Debussy

Fluid, sober, clear and respectful of the text, both incarnate and supernatural, Eric Ruf's conception links the scenes as the plans of a film and plays with subtlety of medieval imagery.

Tristan et isolde

Wagner

A great connoisseur of Wagner, Pierre Audi has chosen a subtle and refined aesthetic for his first staging of Tristan and Isolde. A clear-cut actors’ directing reveals the hidden origins of this well-known love drama, while delicate lighting by Jean Kalman and Christof Hetzer’s timeless costumes contribute to creating scenes of great visual power.

Norma

Bellini

Stéphane Braunscwheig  brings to light Norma’s double life, as she appears as both a priest of an the oppressed people of Gaul and a woman in love with the conqueror. The characters inhabit an austere underground space formed by a modular set which evolves following the opera’s plot, revealing diverse public and private areas. 

Don Giovanni

Mozart

Stéphane Braunschweig imagines the story of Don Giovanni as seen through the eyes of Leporello. The manservant relives his master's last day in a flashback verging on nightmare.

Mithridate

Mozart

Comédie-Française actor and stage director Clément Hervieu-Léger sets the action of Mozart’s drama in a disused theatre, during an unnamed war. Actors and refugees left behind improvise a stageplay of Mithridate by Racine, in a décor by Eric Ruf magnificently lit by Bertrand Couderc. 

La clemence de titus

Mozart

Denis Podalydès's staging, unanimously hailed by critics, situates the action in the 1930s. As the State collapses, Titus's court takes refuge in a palace hotel (sets designed by Eric Ruf) to wait out the crisis.

Idomeneo

Mozart

Stéphane Braunschweig transposes the action to the time of the Cyprus conflict in the 1970s. In this sensitive staging, a single, mobile décor aptly captures the different settings of the plot.

Theodora

Haendel

UK theatre and opera director Stephen Langridge signs a timeless and elegant staging of the last of Haendel oratorios. In this first staged version of Theodora ever presented in Paris, the conflict between the faith of a Christian martyr and a violent and decadent Roman Empire becomes a more universal confrontation of the human being and his choices and beliefs. 

Orlando furioso

Vivaldi

Pierre Audi situates the action in a mysterious 18th century Venice, where the characters develop in an increasingly strange, unreal setting.

Orlando

Handel

In David McVicar's very elegant production, period costumes, magical lighting and masterful décors set off the ambivalences of love.

Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria

Monteverdi 

Between humor and feelings, tenderness and violence, Mariame Clément directs a Return of Ulysses in a setting inspired by the architecture of ancient Greece
