Without the commitment and generosity of businesses, it would be impossible to see many initiatives through. This is because the sponsorship of opera and ballet shows enables more new productions, new ballets and commissions from composers, and hence contributing to the Opera's artistic vitality.
Likewise, the Opera Ballet and Orchestra tours within and outside France, the educational project "Dix mois d’Ecole et d’Opéra" and the one for younger audiences, and the restoration of the institution's architectural heritage would be impossible without the vital support of private financing.
Closely involved with the life of the Opera, corporate sponsors enhance their image in return, offer their partners exceptional experiences in the two houses, Opéra Bastille and the Palais Garnier, and gain numerous exclusive advantages for their employees (backstage tours, special access to shows and rehearsals, meetings with the artists, and so on), as part of the tax advantages laid down by the Sponsorship Act of 2003.
