Dijon Opera is a 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 which present 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 - who is in residence at Dijon Opera from 2010 to 2015 - and the gifted French violinist David Grimal and his ensemble, Les Dissonances.
Participatory education projects are also a key element of the programme, which, alongside low ticket prices, make Dijon Opera accessible to all, especially the young.
Dijon Opera hopes thus to make contribution to a Europe which 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.
