Cappella Mediteranea



The dream I had when I founded Cappella Mediterranea nearly twenty years ago is now taking shape. Our opera projects and international concert tours are multiplying. The audiences that accompany us are growing and rewarding us for daring to present programmes that are pure “science fiction”, as we interpret yesterday’s music in service of today’s emotions. To keep up this momentum, we need you. Thanks to your entrepreneurial spirit and your willingness to explore uncharted territory, our approach resonates with you. It is one that is as ambitious as it is innovative, as we constantly strive for excellence, all while appealing to all kinds of audiences and working for the common good. We do not only want to build a support system. We want to build a network of partners.

Sponsorship programme

All forms of support contribute to the dynamic growth of the ensemble, whether it comes from foundations, small and large companies from different sectors, sponsorships or partnerships.


Cappella Mediterranea is supported by the Ministry of Culture – DRAC Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Region, a Swiss family foundation, a private Geneva foundation and the City of Geneva. In 2016, Cappella Mediterranea was awarded the status of Ensemble à Rayonnement National et International by the French Ministry of Culture, and in 2020, it became a certified “Compagnie Auvergne Rhône Alpes”.

Aline Foriel-Destezet is Cappella Mediterranea’s main benefactor.




The circle of entrepreneurs brings together company directors from all walks of life who share the ensemble’s values and wish to introduce their colleagues and clients to the artistic projects led by Leonardo García Alarcón.
