Performer: Opéra de Dijon

Biography

Dijon Opera is an important cultural institution in France with two venues with exceptional acoustics: the Auditorium (1611 seats) and the Grand Théâtre (700 seats).

Dijon Opera is an important centre for the production of music and opera in Europe and has close partnerships with a number of major ensemble and orchestra’s from across the continent, presenting a wide range of repertoire. Dijon Opera encourages the creation of new work and has developed long-term collaborations with a number of young artists such as the Franco-German composer Brice Pauset - in residence at Dijon Opera from 2010 to 2015 - and the gifted French violinist David Grimal and his ensemble, Les Dissonances.

Education projects are also a key element of the programme, which, alongside low ticket prices, make Dijon Opera accessible to everyone, especially youngest audience.

Dijon Opera hopes thus to make contribution to a Europe that is both humanist and of the highest artistic quality.

Dijon Opera is funded by la Ville de Dijon, the Conseil régional de Bourgogne, the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication and the Conseil général de la Côte-d’Or.

The Dijon Ring – Part 2

Presenting Das Rheingold and Die Walküre in a single evening is audacious enough. To put on a Ring cycle in a week-end, you have to follow this by doing the same with Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, which requires something even more radical. Opéra de Dijon’s director Laurent Joyeux and dramaturg Stephen Sazio set themselves the task of cutting eight hours of music down to five.

The Dijon Ring – Part 1

Putting on a Ring cycle is normally considered a major undertaking for any opera company. For a mid-sized provincial opera company, the idea of staging the whole cycle in a weekend seems barely short of insane. But that’s what Opéra de Dijon are doing – Das Rheingold and Die Walküre last night, Siegfried and Götterdämmerung tonight, and it just had to be seen.
