    Orange, nicknamed the “City of Princes”, enjoys an ideal setting. The city itself has two important witnesses of the Roman era: the Arc de Triomphe and the Ancient Theatre, monuments classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

     

    The Chorégies d’Orange are now the oldest French festival, dating back to 1869. But over the years they have managed to retain all their originality: by the name they bear, derived from the Greek choreos, which links them to the Greco-Latin tradition; by the place in which they take place every summer: a perfectly preserved ancient theatre; by the lyrical and musical vocation they have given themselves.

     

    So let yourself be seduced by the sweet dream.

    Celebrating Puccini, in this year of the centenary of his death, is a duty for a festival that, after all, owes him some of its greatest evenings. Because it was unthinkable to miss this opportunity, because opera at the highest level is the festival’s DNA, because it was possible to bring together an exceptional trio (Aleksandra Kurzak, Roberto Alagna, Bryn Terfel), The Chorégies d’Orange are pleased to present this concert version of Tosca under the musical direction of Clelia Cafiero, who triumphed over their latest Carmen.

     

    In case of bad weather, the performance will take place the following evening.

     

    TUESDAY, JULY 23 – ORANGE
