Chorégies d'Orange

not awarded

The Chorégies d’Orange are 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 organise one of the leading French music festival, with an undisputed international reputation to boot.
