Le Cercle

Founded in 1986, the Cercle du Grand Théâtre de Genève brings together patrons and institutional bodies that wish to support the Grand Théâtre’s activities in the fields of opera, dance and drama. Since its beginnings, the Cercle provides the Grand Théâtre with important financial support for its artistic productions and cultural events.
For the 2019­2020 season, the Cercle is supporting the following productions: Aida, Les Huguenots and Voyage vers l’espoir.
Joining the Cercle du Grand Théâtre de Genève is to support a cultural institution in the service of its city and to give it the means to fulfill its mission: to open hearts to the magic of opera, awaken minds to current debates in society, involve young people in the life of the opera house, make performances accessible to the widest audience, welcome top class productions and artists and promote artistic creation and innovation.
