Production Department

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.

Giulio Cesare in Egitto

Giulio Cesare in Egitto


Damiano Michieletto imagines a white box, which will gradually open to reveal the mental universe of the characters, with in particular the Three Fates who weave the red thread of life that can be cut at any time. They become a kind of obsession for Cesar who knows that his life will end sooner or later

Cosi fan tutte


Laurent Pelly choose to set the action in a studio where artists are recording the opera Così fan tutte. Little by little, each of the performers becomes the character of the opera itself...

Voix humaine

La Voix Humaine / Point d’orgue

Cocteau - Poulenc / Escaich - Py

In 1958, Poulenc composed The Human Voice, a work in one act and for a single female character, alone and facing the distress of the break-up of love. A composer with multiple facets and talents, with a rich orchestral writing nourished by echoes of the sacred, Thierry Escaich has here imposed himself to compose a piece that mirrors Poulenc's own.

La Somnambule

La Sonnambula


Bellini explored all the musical possibilities that could convey the complex moods of his heroine, the innocent victim of an unknown evil. The opera features some of the most beautiful soprano arias from the bel canto repertoire. A cast (Pretty Yende as Amina and Elvino by Francesco Demuro) that will be able to count on the experience of Rolando Villazón who signs his first staging in Paris.

un elixir

Un Elixir d'amour

from Donizetti

For this adaptation for young audiences, the story is transposed to the 1930s in a factory making a cough syrup called "Elixir". The atmosphere is inspired by Charlie Chaplin's film Modern Times, but also by the magical atmosphere of Mel Stuart's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The audience takes part in the opera by representing the team of night workers who transform the syrup recipe.

Les Noces de Figaro

Le Nozze di Figaro


For his first opera staging, filmmaker James Gray chose to situate the plot at the end of the 18th century in order to better focus on the characters' emotions and the relationships between them.

Il Barbiere di Siviglia

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

Pelleas et Melisande

Pelleas et Melisande


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.


Orfeo ed Euridice


Robert Carsen chose to focus on the main character of the opera and opted for a realistic approach, minimizing theatrical artifices and using a unique decor.
