Opéra de Paris exported to the Caribbean

On Thursday 17 December the Opéra National de Paris made its debut in cinemas in Guadeloupe (Rex & D’Arbaud), Martinique (Madiana) and Guyana (Agora).

This partnership between the Opéra de Paris and the three cinemas is part of the extension of relationship with the Opéra de Paris. It enables recording and broadcasting - live or deferred - in over 140 cinemas in France and 90 international locations. The first broadcast was of the ballet Sleeping Beauty, Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece choreographed by Rudolf Nureyev.

Increasing numbers of people are visiting cinemas to hear and see the greatest operas and ballets filmed by leading directors and broadcast under exceptional image and sound conditions. All these broadcasts are aligned with our desire to democratise culture and open up classical music in particular to the greatest possible number of people.
