  • The Paris Opera Orchestra to perform Wagner in Toulouse

    The Paris Opera Orchestra is performing in Toulouse for the first time and will offer audiences an exhilarating journey through the finest excerpts from the Ring Cycle. In 2010 and 2011, the Orchestra’s musical director Philippe Jordan gave the first ever performance of the Ring at the Opéra Bastille and the first complete Ring Cycle at the Paris Opera in over half a century. From the spellbinding “Prelude” of Das Rheingold to the breakneck “Ride of the Valkyries”, Paris audiences will also have a chance to see the concert at the Opéra Bastille in the autumn of 2016.
