ADOR : The Friends of the Royal Opera

ADOR – “Amis de l’Opera Royal”, The Friends of the Royal Opera  ADOR is a non-profit organization established in 2014.  ADOR contributes actively to enhance the national and international reputation of the Royal Opera.


The musical season of the Royal Opera comprises more than sixty performances a year, attracting some 40,000 spectators. The audience, broad in scope and geographically wide, comes from Iles de France, all the districts of Paris and abroad.


Closely related to Château de Versailles Spectacles, ADOR promotes artistic creation by providing financial support to carefully selected ambitious projects. The first project supported by ADOR was the restitution of the Great Venetian Mass for the birth of Louis XIV of Rovetta, by the ensemble Galilei Consort.  This world premiere recreation, staged by the young violinist Benjamin Chenier, was held in the Royal Chapel December 16th 2015 and gave birth to a CD offered to ADOR's members.


By joining ADOR for the 2016-2017 musical season, you will be contributing directly to the enrichment of the Royal Opera's programming in allowing the realization of two major projects:
