Opéra de Marseille
Previously « Théâtre Beauvau », from the name of the Maréchal Prince, Governor of Provence, the Opéra de Marseille, destroyed in a fire in 1919, was rebuilt and reopened in 1924. Theatre in the Art Déco style, it was classified « Historic Monument » in 1997. The Opéra de Marseille is one of the greatest French stages. Of international stature, it offers the public, along with operatic works from the grand repertoire, the discovery of little-performed or little-known operas (L’Héritière, L’Aiglon, La Neige en Août, Sampiero Corso, Maria Golovín, Colombe, Salammbô, The Saint of Bleecker Street, and so on) as well as a season of concerts whose success does not cease to grow.
Endowed with an orchestra of 88 musicians, with the framework of a chorus and with a structure comprising many skilled professionals (scenery workshop, dressmaking workshop, etc.), the Opéra de Marseille presents itself as a place of original creation.
