Become a Patron of the Opera

The Paris National Opera attaches key importance to corporate patronage. With the companies’ generous support, the Paris National Opera is able to fulfil its missions and activities.

Corporate sponsorship allocated to new productions helps to increase the number of choreographical creations and new stage productions. In this perspective, it acts as a guarantee for the Opera’s artistic richness and vitality.

Many projects could not be undertaken without the help of private funding. Examples include : the Opera’s Orchestra and Ballet tours in France and abroad, the education program « Dix Mois d’École et d’Opéra » and the restoring of the Palais Garnier heritage.

Corporate patrons are closely involved in the Opera’s daily life through the Cercle des entreprises mécènes (the Circle of Corporate Patrons), where its members enjoy a large range of benefits.
