The Chorégies d'Orange

The Chorégies d'Orange festival dates from 1860 and is the oldest festival in France. Over the years, the Chorégies have retained all of their freshness and originality, due in part to the name, which comes from the Greek "choreos", linking them to the Grecian-Latin tradition, to the magnificent site where they take place: the perfectly preserved Roman Theatre, which can hold 9,000 spectators, and which still has its stage wall, the guarantee of exceptional acoustics, and to their vocation, which is lyrical and musical performances, placing them among the very best French festivals and certainly one with an indisputable international reputation.

 

The first performance took place in 1869, with "Joseph", an opera by Mehul. At that time, the classic Greek and Roman tragedies were staged there, and the Roman Theatre was also used to promote the French dramatic authors of the era. The use of the Roman Theatre as the stage for lyrical and musical performances became prevalent in 1971, with the creation of the "Nouvelles Chorégies", which met with immediate, overwhelming success. All of the world's great lyrical artists have performed there, bestowing international prestige on this ideal stage which continues to prove itself with each passing year.

 

The Roman Theatre

The Roman Theatre in Orange, one of the most beautiful monuments in France, is testimony to the Roman era. It is the only building of its kind which still has its acoustic stage wall, whose size is quite impressive: 103 meters long, 37 meters high, 1.80 meters thick. The stage itself is 65 meters long, with optimally useful space of 47 meters. Depth varies between 12 and 16 meters. Following the fall of the Roman Empire, the Roman Theatre was no longer used as a place for entertainment. In 1562, it was even transformed into a refuge for the population. Restoration only began in the early 1800's, when the bleachers were rebuilt.

2018 Season

2018 is a pivotal year for the Chorégies d'Orange. The prestigious French festival welcomes the first season signed by its new artistic director Jean-Louis Grinda and a revolution is in progress. He proposes a clever bet with a masterpiece of Italian opera, although little known in France. The Mefistofele of Boito is performed all over the world with success that keeps being renewed since its creation and will excite both the newcomers and the most demanding music lovers. The work thrives with known airs, superb choirs and great theater moments. The music of Boito is comparable to the best Verdi. In Orange, the means were given to create the event with staging by Jean-Louis Grinda in person and will be led by Nathalie Stutzmann. The director who has met all the challenges of Vivaldi to Wagner is surrounded by an ideal distribution with the title holder Erwin Schrott and the talented French tenor Jean-François Borras in the lead.

 

The cast for the second lyric production of the Chorégies d'Orange 2018 is equally exceptional. Olga Peretyatko and Michael Spyres are two huge stars at the height of their vocal means and Florian Sempey, simply the great French Figaro we were expecting! The appearance of Giampaolo Bisanti, the rising Italian conductor, is very much anticipated.

 

But the choregies also contains Music in celebration, Pop the Opera, recitals and concerts. A night under the stars enchants young and old with the Fantasy of Disney which is projected on the walls of the Théâtre Antique with a real orchestra, and what an establishment! The Orchestre National de France is directed by Didier Benetti. The other ensemble of national prestige, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France led by Mikhail Tatrnikov offers a Russian night with the great successes of opera and symphony. On stage, an impressive cast is revealed, with the leading voices of Aida Garifullina and Ekaterina Semenchuk. You should reserve your tickets for the Chorégies without delay, because without a doubt, this evening will be memorable. Another event of size is looming in this decidedly very rich season 2018. It was a long time ago that the ballet made its appearance at the Orange festival. On the stage of the Ancient Theater, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne presents Mozart's Enchanted Flute by the visionary choreographer Maurice Béjart. A performance not to miss. Finally, a very good initiative for voice lovers. Before the big evenings, the Chorégies d'Orange proposes a series of lyrical recitals at 18h, Cour Saint-Louis with four top of the bill artists succeeding one another. Karine Deshayes, Edgardo Rocha, Eva-Maria Westbroek and George Petean fill the most prestigious venues all season long. The Orange 2018 Chorégies announce not only a great season but also an exciting renewal.
