Home - Opéra national de Paris . Several versions of Swan Lake exist, but the one by Rudolf Nureyev — created for the Paris Opera Ballet in December 1984 A princess is captured by a bird of prey and takes to the skies with it…a scene that in reality heralds the end of the ballet. She has everything to embody the white swan or rather, on a second level, everything to embody Siegfried.

Building on the streaming experiences of the first confinement (2.5 million views) and pending the reopening of its theaters (Bastille in a week and Garnier in January), the Paris Opera will throw its last strength into a virtual broadcast formula via the creation of a new platform - the Opera at home - which should be fully operational in the first half of 2021. A paid streaming broadcast of a ballet evening on Facebook on November 13 has been launched Encouraged: 5,000 live spectators, 6,500 in total having bought the program for nearly 5 euros (4.49 euros but we don't count), and good technical and artistic feedback.

Champion of national operatic streaming

The project consists of recovering the rights to all recordings since 2012 and offering them on the platform, as well as organizing live events (opera, ballet, concerts), but also presenting courses and masterclasses. Access will be mixed: free (for the majority of covers) but also paid, with different price ranges. If nothing has been decided for the moment, Martin Ajdari considered that a price of up to 5 euros for cover versions and 10 to 15 euros for live broadcasts was a basis for reflection in a system where the economic model remains to be found. The next live has been announced: la Bayadère, scheduled for mid-December.

The desire to irrigate all corners of the country via the Internet in order to fulfill its public service missions, or even find new spectators, is of course a step forward. But in the background, the institution wishes to pose as a champion of national operatic streaming, as the Philharmonie de Paris is for the concert with its Philharmonie Live platform, without finding itself dependent on broadcasters. The production methods will be varied: delegated co-producer for the “major recordings” of opera (whose invoices can be around 100,000 euros per show, depending on the figure provided by a professional), and which will also be broadcast by partner channels such as Arte or France Télévisions; producer for smaller forms, such as chamber concerts or workshops, with choice of service provider.

Calamitous financial situation

This initiative seems logical on the part of a large opera house which seeks to maintain its preeminence on all media, but remains ambitious at a time when theaters are looking for means of distribution to save their productions in progress and where the visibility of a post-reconfinement return to full gauges is almost zero.

All the more so as the financial situation of the institution is calamitous: nearly 50 million euros of losses in one year, a bailout from the State which has advanced an aid program of 81 million euros 'euros over three years (including 20 million already planned for work), non-existent productions and an ever-depleted Ring, which following the health problems has gone from a flamboyant stage version to a concert opera broadcast at the radio with a change of cast (out Kaufmann and Westbroek, hello Skelton and Davidsen) having also suffered delays due to a case of Covid in the orchestra. To give themselves courage, Neef, master of vision, and Ajdari, master of figures, with many Power Point tables, put their finger on the Achilles heel of the Paris Opera: despite the huge subsidy given by the State to the institution (95 million), it has been declining for ten years and does not cover the theater in working order (120 million). At the slightest stop to the shows, the opera plunges. This has been the case for a year. Hopefully digital shows him the way to the curb.
