Dijon Opera Ends Alliance with its Resident Ensemble

After 12 years of partnership with the French opera house, Le Dissonances ensemble will end its residency 

With the Dijon Opera and the support of the City of Dijon, Les Dissonances and their artistic director, violinist David Grimal, maintained an impressive line-up of projects during their artistic residency since 2008. They performed solo concerts, chamber works with international artists, educational concerts, symphonic repertoire, and many commissioned works.

"The Dijon Opera puts an end to this extraordinary association which lasted 12 years," said Grimal in a press release. "During the health crisis which greatly weakened the independent groups, the sudden interruption of this residence further destabilizes the Dissonances project. 

"We now need to reinvent ourselves and find the fertility of new territorial anchors," he continued. "Les Dissonances and I hope to find our Dijon audience in better days very soon! 

"Today, more than ever, my ambition, as well as that of the Dissonances and the artists associated with the project, remains the sharing of music with as many people as possible, always with a humanistic and demanding approach to our art if necessary."
