The musical season

Operas, concerts and ballets: discover the music programme for 2013-2014 at the Palace of Versailles.

During the music season of 2013-2014, the Palace of Versailles will be hosting numerous operas, concerts and ballets in its exceptional settings, the Royal Opera house and the Royal Chapel, but also in the Dauphine’s Drawing Room and the Dauphin’s Guardroom.

This new programme features baroque discoveries in coproduction with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles, essential works of the classical repertoire such as Lully’s Persée, Campra’s Tancrède, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, and Handel’s Orlando, and rediscovered masterpieces including Vinci’s Artaserse, Cavalli’s Elena and Philidor’s Les Femmes Vengées performed as part of a diptych with Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte in a French version.

Outstanding figures of the musical scene such as Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann, Joseph Caleja, Bejun Mehta and René Jacobs will be honouring us with their presence in Versailles. The loyalty of certain artistes and ensembles such as Les Arts Florissants, Max Emanuel Cencic, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne and the Ballet Preljocaj also promises unforgettable performances.
