New Season 2014-2015 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris

For the first time in more than 25 years, the program of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées includes a world premiere.

With only 5 staged opera productions, general director Michel Franck manages to compete directly with larger opera houses, simply because he presents operas that are not performed by other opera houses in Paris.

The 2014-2015 season includes 5 operas :

- Jean-Philippe Rameau : Castor et Pollux (new production), no production in Paris in the last 25 years ;
- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : La Clemenza di Tito (new production) ;
- Dai Fujikura : Solaris (world première) ;
- Giuseppe Verdi : Macbeth (new production) ;
- Gaetano Donizetti : Maria Stuarda (production from Houston, April 2012).

As usual, a number of operas will also be performed in concert : 

- Georg Friedrich Haendel : Alcina, with Joyce DiDonato ;
- Jules Massenet : Cléopâtre, with Sophie Koch and Ludovic Tézier ;
- Gioachino Rossini : Semiramide, with Elena Mosuc and Michele Pertusi ;
- Agostino Steffani : Niobe, with Karina Gauvin and Philippe Jaroussky ;
- Gioachino Rossini : Guillaume Tell, with Nicola Alaimo and Annick Massis ;
- Gioachino Rossini : L’Occasione fa il ladro, with Roberto de Candia and Désirée Rancatore ;
- Georg Friedrich Haendel : Hercules, with Matthew Rose and Alice Coote.

In the 2013-2014 season were performed, among others, Gaspare Spontini’s La Vestale, Gioacchino Rossini’s Otello (with Cecilia Bartoli) and Tancredi (with Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Patrizia Ciofi) and Giacomo Puccini’s Le Villi.
