A Place for Modern Opera and Ballet to Call Home

Paris Opera and Ballet

The Paris Opera (Opéra National de Paris) has long been an innovator in creating acclaimed artistic productions. Since the 1660s, this influential institution founded by King Louis XIV has been a driving force in the development of classical opera as we think of it today and continues to present major productions to audiences from across the world. 

More than 400 performances take place each year in the 2,000-seat 19th-century architectural gem that is the Palais Garnier (whose renovated ceiling is adorned with frescoes painted by Marc Chagall) and the Opera Bastille, the company's modern 2,700-seat theatre that was constructed in 1989. The Paris Opera has hosted the world premieres of such operas as Giuseppi Verdi's Don Carlos, Igor Stravinsky's Perséphone, and Giacomo Meyerbeer's Robert le diable, and Jean-Philipe Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie. An essential partner of the Paris Opera, the Paris Opera Ballet is not only the world's oldest national ballet, but also a beloved and vital cultural institution.
