The Chorégies d'Orange is a summer opera festival held each August in Orange located about 21 kilometres north of Avignon in southern France. Performances are presented in the ancient Roman theatre, the Théâtre Antique d'Orange, the original stage wall of which has remained intact, creating a semi-circular auditorium which seats 9,000.
All the major players of the French classical stage appeared in the Orange festivals, including Sarah Bernhardt who played “Phèdre” in 1903.
The Chorégies d'Orange are today the oldest French festival since they date from 1869. But over the years they have managed to retain all their originality: by the name they bear, from the Greek "choreos" , which thus links them to the Greco-Latin tradition.
