En serait-il moins sans espoir ? »

Opéra de Limoges

Opéra de Limoges

The Opéra de Limoges constitutes a hub of creativity, of production and of dissemination of operatic and choreographic presentations, within a local and regional remit. Original shows and new productions are conceived, within a framework of co-productions, with a view to a broader diffusion within the region, in France and in the event abroad.

The Opéra-Théâtre de Limoges implements a musical programme which essentially rests upon the Orchestre de Limoges et du Limousin as regards symphonic music, on nationally or internationally renowned artists or groups in order to cover the entire field of learned, improvised or traditional music, with particular attention given to exploring all forms of song.
