Opéra Comédie in Montpellier
We are very pleased to announce that Nathalie Stutzmann and Orfeo 55 will be in Residency at the Opera National Orchestra Montpellier Occitanie for the seasons 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020!
The program will include 4 major events a year (concert-recitals and / or stage production of an opera and / or classical oratorio), concerts in the Occitanie region and educational activities.
A few words from Nathalie Stutzmann: “Orfeo 55 performed for the first time at the Opéra Comédie in Montpellier in May 2016 and we felt an immediate and obvious complicity with the beauty of the place, the quality of the acoustics, the warm welcome we received from the audience and the enthusiasm of the management.
All of this naturally led us to think about closer collaboration, and it’s with great joy that I accepted the invitation of a Residency from the General Manager of the establishment Mrs. Valérie Chevalier to install the orchestra for the next three years at the Opera. My musicians and I are delighted to integrate the musical life of this historic house and its magnificent region in order to promote the personality, the specificities, the identity of Orfeo 55 and to transmit our love of music. It is also the first time that Orfeo 55 will be in Residency in an opera since its creation in 2009, which opens new horizons. A stage production is already under discussion.”
Next season, Orfeo 55 will perform in Montpellier on 5 November, 13 March and 4 June. To find out more, visit opera-orchestre-montpellier.fr!
