En serait-il moins sans espoir ? »

Opéra de Lille

Opéra de Lille

Since its reopening in December 2003, the Opéra de Lille has offered a varied operatic programme extending from the baroque period to original works by contemporary composers, as well as the great masterpieces of the repertory. Contemporary dance also plays an essential role: the programme reflects current aesthetic orientations contrasted by the concurrent presentation of fundamental works. Other artistic events are on offer so as to facilitate access for all to Opera: the Wednesday concerts at 6 p.m., Happy Days (thematic and open days) and a selection of family shows.
