Opéra de Saint-Étienne
Enjoying a national as well as an international reputation, the Opéra de Saint-Etienne is a popular opera house whose specific work on the French Romantic repertoire is widely recognized.
The Chœur Lyrique and the Orchestre Symphonique Saint-Étienne Loire conducted by Laurent Campellone are the essential mainstays of a programme which is equally able to reach out to artists from all horizons.
A key regional institution as regards dance, the Opéra de Saint-Etienne also offers a particularly remarkable Jeune Public season which makes it one of the major players of performing arts for children in France.
Associated with a season counting over 160 performances, the Opéra de Saint-Etienne is developing an extremely fertile policy of artistic education.
