Opéra de Dijon

Opéra de Dijon

A key place of creation and production of European musical and operatic life, the Opéra de Dijon is now on the map at the crossroads of Europe. With its in-residence artists, for instance David Grimal, Les Dissonances, and Andreas Staier, its Franco-German composer, Brice Pauset and his associated artists, the Opéra de Dijon irradiates at the highest level due to its musical rigour and its thirst for sharing. Every season, the Opéra de Dijon welcomes about 70 000 spectators for over 90 shows. Numerous pedagogical and cultural development actions, not to mention an attractive pricing policy, guarantee preferential access for all and specifically for young audiences.
