Galas are exceptional fundraising events designed to support the creation of new opera and ballet productions at the Paris national Opera and to give access to young audiences, unfamiliar with these art forms.
These prestigious events take place on the occasion of an evening with a unique program at the Palais Garnier or at the Opéra Bastille.
The Honorary Committee, chaired by a personality, brings together the donors of the gala. The donations and benefits of these events are meant to finance new shows at the Paris Opera. A cocktail is served at the intermission, in the theaters decorated for the occasion. A supper is proposed at the end of the performance, in the presence of the artists.
The Matinée “Rêve d’enfants”
For more than thirty years, this exceptional performance has been organized at Christmas time for children from social centers. The benefits of this event allow to invite many children to discover the magic of a ballet, and support the educational program “ Dix Mois d’École et d’Opéra ” lead by the Paris Opera Academy.
