Orchestra of the Opéra national de Lorraine

The Orchestra of the Opéra national de Lorraine is created in 1884. Associated with the Salle Poirel specially built in 1889 for the symphonic seasons, it fulfils its both symphonic and lyrical mission linked with the Opera of Nancy from 1979. In 2006, the Ministry of Culture and Communication assigns to the latter the status of national opera, what takes part in the rise of the Orchestra’s influence.
The 66 musicians of the Orchestra give about sixty concerts per season, mainly at the Salle Poirel where it is in residence since 2017, but also at the Opéra national de Lorraine for the lyrical works. The Orchestra is regularly invited by prestigious theatres or festivals, not only in the Région Grand Est but also around France.
The Polish conductor Marta Gardolińska was appointed musical director of the Orchestra in January 2021, succeeding the Israeli conductor Rani Calderon. Her appointment marks a new step in the Orchestra’s life and fits completely with the development of the project “Nancy – Opéra citoyen” carried out by its director Matthieu Dussouillez, with the setting up of an ambitious artistic and cultural agenda striving for excellence to the advantage of all.
It is an essential cultural tool for the city of Nancy, it allows the largest audience to discover music through eclectic programs and high-level conductors and soloists.
