About

NICOLAS JOËL: DIRECTOR OF THE PARIS OPERA.

Born in Paris in 1953, Joël has been Director of the Opéra de Toulouse for the last 15 years, building an international reputation for the theater partially based on the connections resulting from his career as stage director in opera houses ranging from San Francisco and New York to London, Paris, Vienna, and of course his home base, Toulouse.
Politics in France being what they are, the Théâtre du Capitole (the opera in Toulouse) has never been granted the status of Opéra National, already accorded to such "distinguished" companies as Nancy, Bordeaux, Strasbourg (l’Opéra du Rhin), an honor of which Joël makes light, and justly so when one regards the renown of the orchestra, opera and ballet on a city with just over 425,000 inhabitants.
