France will help Saudi Arabia to get its first orchestra and opera. The two countries signed a cultural agreement. The Paris Opera will help Saudi Arabia make its own performances. The first opera house will be in Saudi's second largest city, Jeddah. Saudi will spend $64 billion on entertainment in the next 10 years.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's plan is to modernize Saudi. France will help with tourism. It will preserve old sites in Saudi's region of Al-Ula.
