Since 2008 the symposia of the Opéra Comique have surveyed opera from various perspectives by associating several research partners. The Opéra Comique is at the center of these transdisciplinary and international working sessions. From 2018 onward, there will be two lines of research: one on the operatic company, disbanded in 1971, the other on the institution’s operatic economy, which has combined its own resources and public funding since 1762.

The resurrection of La Nonne sanglante is an opportunity to immerse oneself in Charles Gounod’s operatic output. Each one of his twelve operas will be presented from the viewpoint of its creation and destiny on the stage. Archival documents and analyses of this eclectic and original corpus will enable scholars to grasp Gounod’s unique view of opera and cover with him thirty years of French theatrical history.

In collaboration with the Palazzetto Bru Zane - Centre de musique romantique française
