The Académie Desprez


The Academie Desprez's mission primarily consists of :

  • encouraging the coming together of art lovers who wish to play a supportive or active role in the international development and influence of Drottningholms Slottsteater;
  • furthering the development of cultural relationships between Drottningholms Slottsteater and France by the means of individual, collective or institutional exchanges of know-how and productions or by helping partnership, this occuring mainly through a franco-swedish relationship ;
  • enhancing the influence of Drottningholms Slottsteater by emphasising and restauring the historic links binding it to French culture notably thanks to publications, lectures, symposiums, performances and exhibitions.

The association has taken the name of Louis-Jean Desprez. He was an XVIIIth century French architect and painter called by Gustave III to the Swedish Court. Besides many architectural achievements, we also have to thank him for Drottningholms Slottsteater's foyer and the design of a variety of stage sets and costumes.
