We present two versions of the Egorov theorem for orbifolds. The first one is a straightforward extension of the classical theorem for smooth manifolds. The second one considers an orbifold as a singular manifold, the orbit space of a Lie group action, and deals with the corresponding objects in noncommutative geometry.

Key words: microlocal analysis; noncommutative geometry; symplectic reduction; quantization; foliation; orbifold; Hamiltonian dynamics; elliptic operators.
