Not to be missed in June 2019:

In June at the Opéra Bastille, Puccini's Tosca is still on display with the huge star Jonas Kaufmann, who this time has Sonya Yoncheva as a partner. Places are to be booked very quickly. Another admirable soprano comes to Paris in La forza del destino de Verdi. The sublime Anja Harteros sings alongside Brian Jagde, the tenor debuts at Bastille on this occasion. Another event to be noticed is the Ballet Tree of Codes, allowing the dancers of the Paris Opera to perform in a choreography by Wayne McGregor, one of the greatest of today.

 


Season after season the National Opera of Paris offers a fine and comparable selection, to the delight of music lovers since the great artists once again are at the rendezvous. The huge star Jonas Kaufmann finally offers the Paris public its interpretation of Mario in Tosca. He partners with no less than three of the biggest sopranos today: Anja Harteros, Sonya Yoncheva and Martina Serafin.

 

The divine Anja Harteros is also to be seen in Verdi's Forza del destino in Jean-Claude Auvray's beautiful staging alongside Brian Jagde who makes his debut at the Paris Opera. Another tenor with exceptional aura, Roberto Alagna, embodies Otello in a role at the merits of his talent alongside the sweet Aleksandra Kurzak. This season 2018-2019, he also embodies the role of Don José with the incandescent Carmen Anita Rachvelishvili. The mezzo is at the peak of her vocal means and it is imperative to book opera tickets as soon as possible.

 

Another mezzo headliner returns to Bastille after her triumph in Don Carlos. Elina Garanca is the Didon of the long-awaited new production of the Trojans of Berlioz. The phenomenal opera is back at the Opera Bastille with the direction of Philippe Jordan and the staging of the always exciting Dmitri Tcherniakov. This is one of the highlights of the season. Opera Bastille offers the most noble baritone, Ludovic Tezier a golden role with Simon Boccanegra of Verdi.

 

Another event, the return of the Grand French Opera that made the beautiful evenings of the Paris Opera in the nineteenth century. An ideal cast (with prominences like Lisette Oropesa, Karine Deshayes, Ermonela Jaho and Bryan Hymel) was assembled to ensure the representations of Huguenots Meyerbeer will pay respect to the beauty of the work.

 

Among the great works on display, we should equally look out for the dance performances. The famous troupe of the Paris Opera Ballet performs in Bastille with the immortal choreographies of Cinderella and the grandiose Swan Lake by Rudolph Nureyev. Modernity is not forgotten with Tree of Codes, the great success of Wayne McGregor. The major operatic titles follow one another with Verdi's La Traviata or Donizetti's charming Elisir d'Amore. The sexy Vittorio Grigòlo is partnered with the exquisite Lisette Oropesa in the perfect staging of Laurent Pelly.

 

Among the personalities of the scene under the spotlight, we await the new production of the significant Krzysztof Warlikowski with Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk of Shostakovich. Another outstanding director, Robert Carsen has signed with Rusalka Dvorák, one of his most successful shows, a must as is Mozart's Die Zauberflöte. With a remarkable cast of young talents (mostly French and Belgian), fans have once again something to celebrate during this beautiful season 2018-2019 of the Opera Bastille.

Informations sur Opéra Bastille

From its beginnings under Louis XIV to the present day, including the construction of the Palais Gamier under Napoleon III, the history of the Paris Opera has been marked by the wishes and whims of the French government. The decision to build a new opera on the Place de la Bastille is no exception, made by Frangois Mitterrand less than a year after being elected President. A competition was organized, and of the 750 projects presented, the one designed by the Uruguayan-Canadian architect Carl Ott won. The new building, whose large ground surface ostentatiously marks the site where the French Revolution broke out, was inaugurated during the bicentennial celebrations of that same Revolution in 1989.

 

From the Place de la Bastille, the building's glass facade, with its "aleatory" lighting designed by Yann Kersale, suggests the sober modernism of its interior, even more so because the interior uses the same construction materials as the exterior, symbolizing a desire to open out to the public. Once inside, one can discover the warmth of the light wood that adorns the large 2703-seat hall with its proscenium stage. But the building barely stops here, for one must imagine the enormous backstage that takes up 55 per cent of the edifice's total volume, the six underground stories of technical premises, the workshops that make and stock the mobile sets as well as the costumes, not to mention the Gounod Hall, that has a stage identical to the main one, used for rehearsals. Designed around a symmetrical axis that is symbolized by the sculpted tuning forks that decorate the public premises, the Bastille Opera is a formidable computerized machine for staging opera productions, employing the population of a veritable city-within-a-city.

 

The conductor Myung-Whun Chung faced the difficult task of starting up this machine. The audience discovered productions staged by Bob Wilson or Peter Sellars, which it did not always unanimously applaud. But today, in full possession of its impressive technical means, permitting the rotation of different productions, the Bastille Opera proposes the most diverse performances. Currently managed by Hugues Gall and his music director James Conlon, revivals, premieres and major productions now share the season's billing, at a pace that leaves the audience little respite.

Since 2014, Stépahne Lissner is the Director of the Paris Opera.
