The Lyon Opera Ballet offers a broad vision of dance developed by its successive directors since 1969, uniting top choreographers and budding talents in a diverse range of performances. The eclectic nature of its repertoire, a spirit of openness that welcomes different choreographic approaches and a mastery of classic dance technique are part of the DNA of the Opéra de Lyon Ballet and its 30 dancers, hailing from 13 different countries. Today, the troupe features a repertoire totaling 117 productions, half of which are new creations.

The overall mission of the Opéra National de Lyon is to promote the lyrical, musical and choreographic arts in the city of Lyon, the Region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, throughout France and internationally, through creation, production and distribution of stage performances. To do so, the institution relies on an abiding commitment by local and national authorities: the City of Lyon, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Lyon Metropolitan Area and the Region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. It also draws on its own permanent artistic bodies: the orchestra, the vocal ensemble and choir school, the ballet company and the career development studio for young singers.
