Edition 2019



Paris Opera’s 3e Scène has as mission to digitally promote the diverse forms of contemporary art with original works that offer a firsthand look at the Opera’s world of music and dance, its legacy, trade and architecture. This digital scene is a site of artistic experimentation, with free reign given to artists from every discipline (plastic artists, filmmakers, photographers, writers…), inviting them to create and forge ties with the Opera. Among its artists are: Abd Al Malik, Mathieu Amalric, Clément Cogitore, William Forsythe, Sébastien Laudenbach, Claude Lévêque, Jonathan Littell, Alex Prager, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. Free of charge and open to all, the 3e Scène assists the Paris Opera in building bridges across the arts and opening up a dialogue with its audience and a new generation. The works produced here haven’t stopped growing in influence, especially through invitations to cultural events in France and abroad. For the second time, the Paris Opera is partnering with the Rencontres d’Arles to offer projections of first run films from the 3e Scène : Grand Hôtel Barbès by Ramzi Ben Sliman, Violetta by Julie Deliquet, Le Couronnement by Jonathan Littell.
