A Flute for Plataea

An educational project that pleads for your generosity

A collaborative musical project by the Royal Opera and the Concert Spirituel for children hospitalised at the Hôpital Necker - Enfants malades – APHP in Paris

Since 2019, Château de Versailles Spectacles and the Concert Spirituel have been offering musical workshops to children hospitalised at Hôpital Necker to bring them some comfort with music.

Throughout the year, once or twice a month, the musicians of the Concert Spirituel visit the Hôpital Necker, in the common areas or directly at the bedside of sick children, to offer fun musical workshops. The programme includes instrumental practice, simplified composition, presentation of the characters and themes of the operas on which the sessions are based.

The children of Hôpital Necker have enjoyed workshops based on operas performed at the Royal Opera of Versailles, such as Mozart's Magic Flute, Don Quixote chez la Duchesse by Boismortier, Richard the Lionhearted by Grétry and Platée by Rameau. Works where fantasy and imagination reign supreme!

The health crisis did not interrupt the workshops, which are now mainly conducted at the children's bedside and not in groups.


This operation is only possible with your backing. Its annual budget is only 10 000 euros! The ADOR supports this generous educational project and collects the funds needed to make it possible.

Make a donation so that the enchanting music of Mozart, Rameau or Grétry, a source of constant delight, becomes part of the life of the children at Necker Hospital.

We thank our donors for helping us to be bolder, to dream bigger and to offer moments of magic to sick children and their families.
