We are rewriting the opera house’s business models to make them reconcile with the preservation of our planet: the recycling of our decors, the creation of a natural dye workshop for the costumes, our programming and our coproduction policies all reﬂect our concerns about Performing Arts’ impact on the environment.
The Opéra Comique is striving to develop a lyrical theatre economy which would take solidarity, social inclusion and environmental challenges into account, without sacriﬁcing artistic ambition.Performing Arts’ carbon footprint cannot be ignored and must be addressed in developing a coproduction model. Help us address climate challenges further:
In 2020, the Opéra Comique started a partnership with the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales to bring together students, researchers, as well as the teams and partners of the Opéra Comique, in order to question the opera house’s business model in light of its environmental impact.
The Opéra Comique has created its own coproduction network. Mutualising productions with other institutions builds new rapports, increases the number of performances and enables a long-term return on investment.
