Partnership with Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet

18th December 2023

Opera for Peace is delighted to announce our partnership with Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet in Paris starting from 2024.
This collaboration is built on common values such as artistic excellence, a strong focus on youth, and openness to the world. Through a series of events organized in the auditorium, we will showcase talents, including those from Asia, on a global scale, notably during “Guimet x China 2024,” which will celebrate Chinese culture throughout the year 2024 at the musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet.
The first event together will be on the occasion of the “Opera for Peace Academy” final concert in April 2024. This exceptional evening will bring together thirteen young lyrical singers from around the world, including Asia, for a memorable evening dedicated to lyrical art, international dialogue, and peace. Under the main sponsorship of the European Investment Bank (EIB), and together with the BNP Paribas Foundation and Ville de Paris , this Academy will provide a unique opportunity for talented artists from countries such as China, South Korea, Japan, Ukraine, Russia, South Africa, Armenia, the United States, Iran, and France to participate in vocal classes, lectures, workshops, and masterclasses conducted by renowned icons of the international lyrical scene. This event will mark the fusion of diverse musical cultures and the celebration of the universal beauty of opera.
The following events will celebrate the “The 60 years of diplomatic relations between France and China and the Franco-Chinese year of Cultural tourism” in parallel with the museum collections and exhibitions around Chinese art. Here we will showcase Chinese opera singers and musicians alongside French artists, honouring both cultures. Music, as a universal language, becomes a powerful catalyst for mutual understanding and the creation of connections beyond borders!
