The 2014-2015 season

Operas, concerts and ballets: discover the programme for the 2014-2015 season

During the new musical season, the Palace of Versailles will be hosting a range of operas, concerts and ballets in exceptional settings: The Royal Opera, the Hall of Mirrors, the Royal Chapel, the Hercules salon and the Orangerie.

This year marks the 250th anniversary of Jean-Philippe Rameau's death, and a number of artists are paying homage to one of the greatest Baroque composers. From Dardanus to Zaïs and Les Boréades, there are many masterpieces to rediscover, with conductors including Marc Minkowski, Christophe Rousset and William Christie.

Legendary operas are being presented in the centuries-old surroundings of the Royal Opera, including Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by Lully and Molière, Handel's Xerxès and Offenbach's Tales of Hoffman. Great masterpieces of sacred music are also on offer in the Royal Chapel, including Handel's Messiah, Mozart's Requiem and Bach's Saint Matthew's Passion.

This programme includes the sublime voices of Nathalie Dessay and Max Emanuel Cencic and remarkable soloists such as Alexandre Tharaud and Emmanuel Pahut, for a glorious season of concerts and recitals. Unforgettable evenings will also be had in the company of the Monte-Carlo Ballet, the Malandain Ballet Biarritz and Ballet Preljocaj.
