Created September 2015 by the Opéra National de Paris, 3e Scène is a digital platform inviting artists of all types to express themselves in different genres: fiction, documentary, animation, performance. 3e Scène gives artists whose disciplines are not obviously associated with opera—filmmakers, sculptors, illustrators, or writers—the opportunity to create a work related to the world of lyrical and choreographic art. Among these artists: Abd Al Malik, Mathieu Amalric, Fanny Ardant, Bertrand Bonello, Clément Cogitore, William Forsythe, Sébastien Laudenbach, Claude Lévêque, Clémence Poésy, Xavier Veilhan, Apitchapong Weerasethakul… Every month, a new work is made available online at operadeparis.fr/3e‑scene. By means of this digital stage, free and available worldwide, the Opéra National de Paris multiplies artistic bridges and establishes a special relationship with its audience, particularly by developing “outside” exhibitions. After collaborating with the Fonds Hélène & Édouard Leclerc at Landerneau in the spring of 2016, with the Mairie de Paris and its 2016 edition of the Nuit Blanche, and the live performance Adieu Bohème at the Studio Bastille in October 2017, the 3e Scène once again went out to meet its public by joining with the Gaîté Lyrique for its Festival, December 8-10, 2017, and will be associated with the Rencontres d'Arles throughout the summer.
