The 2020 issue of the Festival is cancelled due to COVID19 situation.
OVERVIEW of the Chorégies d'Orange 2020
The Chorégies d'Orange are still the one of the biggest events in the Summer Festivals scenery. With Aix, the biggest lyric event in France once again brings a lot of nice surprises in this 2020 season. After the milestone of 150 years last season, the Chorégies d'Orange keep up the same line of excellence by inviting the biggest stars of the opera. It is important to reserve your seats as early as possible to ensure you have the best possible placement. The event that will stir the entire lyric planet is the arrival of the incredible superstar Cecilia Bartoli. For the first time ever, the incredible artist is singing at the Chorégies d'Orange. There is no doubt that music lovers will rush to the occasion to crack the stands under their applause. With Les Musicians du Prince, la Bartoli reserves an exceptional program of rare baroque airs being the only diva able to offer this repertoire to her audience with such success.
Another highly anticipated superstar at Orange, Roberto Alagna is making a comeback at the Théâtre antique in an absolute masterpiece, Samson and Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns. The scene even seems to be designed to accommodate the grand opera that is both spectacular and intimate. Around the tenor, Jean-Louis Grinda, the director of the Chorégies (also staging), brought together a distribution that is truly exceptional. The magnificent Marie-Nicole Lemieux lends her features to the voluptuous Dalila while Ludovic Tézier, the greatest baritone today embodies the high priest of Dagon.
The other title on the Chorégies d´Orange 2020 poster is one that deeply touches the soul. La Forza del Destino, which will be set up with choir movements, entrances, exits and illumination of the wall, also marks a great return to tradition with another masterpiece by Verdi. Here again, you have to book your show tickets because the distribution is fantastic with the wonderful soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek or the baritone Amartuvshin Enkhbat, a revelation to discover urgently! Praised by the public, the dance productions made a welcome reappearance at the Chorégies d'Orange two years ago.
This 2020 season, the Bejart Ballet Lausanne is back in force with a landmark show. Ballet for Life on Queen and Mozart music is a masterpiece by Maurice Béjart danced by the breathtaking and virtuoso company that is the living memory of the irreplaceable genius choreographer. Speaking of virtuoso, the violinist Nemanja Radulovic comes to amaze the spectators of the Chorégies. With this extraordinary artist, there is always electricity in the air because the soloist is not only a brilliant virtuoso but also an accomplished performer who puts his immense talent at the service of composers, in particular Vivaldi and the Four Seasons which promises to be unforgettable. Another very beautiful symphonic concert is on the program for the 2020 season of Orange Chorégies. In this year of Beethoven, to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the immense German composer, the beloved conductor, Myung-Whun Chung conducts the fifth symphony at the head of the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra. In the first part, the magnificent violinist Maxim Vengerov performs another masterpiece, the brilliant concerto by Brahms. A very great moment of music in perspective!
