An institution rich in projects
The Paris Opera accords decisive importance to corporate sponsorship in the realisation of its projects and the accomplishment of its missions.
Without the commitment and generosity of firms, numerous initiatives could not be led to completion.. Sponsorship of opera and ballet allows us to increase the number of new productions, original dance works and commissions from composers : it guarantees the artistic vitality of the Paris Opera..
Furthermore, the tours by the Paris Opera Ballet both in France and abroad, certain activities of the Atelier Lyrique or the Ballet School, the educational programmes "Ten Months of School and Opera" and "Young Audiences", or indeed restoration work on our cultural heritage could not be pursued without the indispensable contribution of private financing.
In close relation with the life of the Opera, corporate sponsors can, in return, enhance their image, organise public relations operations, and offer their employees exclusive advantages (backstage tours, privileged access to performances, meetings with performers) whilst profiting from the tax benefits of the 2003 sponsorship legislation.
