If it is true that music is the language of emotions, then the Opéra de Massy (Massy Opera House) is their place of expression.
France’s newest opera house was built in Massy in 1993. Besides its modernity, it also boasts its status as the only suburban Opera House. The demanding yet accessible programme offers a harmonious blend of original creations and great classics.
On an endless quest for new talent, it offers its stage to artists from all horizons. The operas, plays and dance performances take place in the main auditorium, where the public benefits from the venue’s acoustic perfection.
Every year it hosts artists in residence. This joint work allows the artists to work in an environment which is conducive to creation. Various cultural activities are organised throughout the year.
The Opéra de Massy is closely involved with community life and renews its Bus Opera campaign year after year, reaching out to local residents and the public at large in order to promote the art among them. For an added touch of originality, during the operation a school bus travels the streets of the town to transport people wishing to attend the performance.
The Opera House has a resident orchestra founded in 1989 and conducted by Dominique Rouits. Every year, the orchestra performs fifty or so concerts as well as being involved in educational measures to promote musical awareness.
