Opera is an important part of French culture. Dramatic adaptations of major stories have graced stages across the city – from grand palaces to smaller theatre. Artists have long sat in the audiences and taken inspiration from the scenes, the performances and the general sense of the drama of the whole affair. One such artist was Degas. Degas is probably best known now for his figures – typically dancers and other performers in paintings or bronze sculpture.
Much of his work centred around French opera and this is the theme of a new exhibition soon to be held at the Musee d’Orsay. Here visitors will have the chance to compares many of his work and look at common themes and approaches in the pieces The exhibition opens on the 24th of September and runs through the winter until January 19th. Make the most of this opportunity while you still have the chance.
