Its residence at the Opera gives our audiences a chance to hear a mix of famous works and rare gems, rising young soloists and international stars, programmes for the family, as well as master classes for students and teachers from the region.

The Belgian ensemble Ictus is composed of some 20 soloists of the highest level. Its programming covers a broad spectrum of styles, but each of its concerts takes the listener on a coherent and attractive adventure: thematic concerts, concerts with commentary or stage productions. Since its residence began in 2003, these ever-original and convivial events have enjoyed tremendous success with a broad range of audiences. Each season, Ictus also leads a number of original projects initiated by the Lille Opera with educational establishments (conservatories, CFMI), with classes for teachers and a musical programme for primary schools.
