This season’s artistic projects supported by ADOR
The pandemic has particularly weakened Baroque music’s artists. It is essential to provide these artists and ensembles with upfront financial assistance to allow them to get back to work, resume their research and create performances.
ADOR is strongly committed to the Royal Opera and will support 18 productions for the 2020-2021 Season in the form of financial aid, allowing the recipients to develop their artistic projects which will be presented in the Palace of Versailles.
This essential support reflects more than ever the mission that the Friends of the Royal Opera have given themselves: providing the means to a new generation of baroque musicians to bring back to life the great masterpieces of our musical heritage.
