With forty permanent members, the Chorus of the Opéra National de Bordeaux has, since 1940, been directed in succession by Roger Lemoyne, Gérard Winkler, Alain Housset, Michel Tranchant and Gunter Wagner.

In addition to its other operatic work the chorus has been associated with world premières of La Main de Gloire by Jean Françaix, Henri Sauguet’s Les Saisons, Tomasi’s Sampiero Corso, Landowski’s Montségur, as well as French or Bordeaux premières of Ivan IV, Christophe Colomb, Jeanne au Bûcher, Peter Grimes and other works. Since 1990 the chorus has taken part in a large number of productions, among them Don Carlos, Il trovatore, Così fan tutte, Rigoletto, Le nozze di Figaro, La vie parisienne, Falstaff, Die Fledermaus, and Der Fliegende Holländer, as well as in symphony concerts with the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine.
