A kind and welcoming opera house

In order to reach all audiences, even the most remote ones, or people suffering from disabilities, the Opéra Comique programmes performances in audio description as well as sign singing concerts. Our opera house has been selected as a pilot facility to test Relax sessions.

This English concept, implemented in collaboration with the Ciné-ma différence Association, offers an inclusive and caring environment for people whose disability (autism, multiple disabilities, mental or psychic disability, Alzheimer…) may give rise to atypical and unpredictable behaviour during the shows. Artists and audiences are aware, the opera-house’ standard procedures are more flexible and everyone can experience emotions freely without fearing stares from others.

155 have benefited from Relax sessions in 2019

1 Relax session per show is the Opéra Comique’s target for 2022

731 people suffering from disabilities have come to the Opéra Comique in 2020
