Les Chorégies d'Orange

Chorégies d'orange
From June 18th to July 31st 2021
 

The Chorégies d’Orange is France’s oldest active festival: they date back to 1869!

This venerable age has not prevented them from preserving their originality: 
through the name they bear, from the Greek ‘choreos’, harking back to the Graeco-Latin tradition; 
through the location of the summer performances, a perfectly preserved Roman theatre, that seats 8,300 and can boast its original stage wall and its outstanding acoustics; 
through the lyric and musical vocation that is theirs and that allows them to organize one of the leading French music festivals, with an undisputed international reputation to boot.

Located in the heart of the Rhône Valley, the Roman Theatre of Orange is without a doubt one of the finest remnants of the Roman Empire. Exceptional evidence of Ancient Rome and part of the UNESCO World Heritage list, it is the best-preserved theatre in Europe.

It owes its fame in particular to its magnificent stage wall, amazingly well-preserved and unique in the Western world. A venue for shows in Roman times, it continues in this role today, to the delight of music lovers the world over.

The finest wall in my kingdom”. This was how Louis XIV described the imposing façade of the theatre, 103 meters long, 1.80 meters thick and 37 meters high.
