Participate in gala evenings

AROP organises prestigious evenings at the Palais Garnier and the Opéra Bastille.
These gala events are aimed at raising funds to help support the new productions of the Paris Opera.

The Honorary Committee

Presided over by a different personality each time, the Honorary Committee brings together the benefactors of the Gala Evening. Their gifts, which give rise to a tax reduction, are entirely donated to the Paris Opera and directly contribute to financing its activities.

The tickets

Profits from these evenings also come from an increase in ticket prices: tickets are sold at a higher price on these evenings. The additional income is donated to the Paris Opera.

The evening

The price includes a cocktail served during the interval in the theatres which are decorated for the occasion. Supper is also proposed: it is served in the foyers, in the presence of the artists, at the end of the performance. Evening dress is recommended.
