Place de l'Opéra, 75009 Paris, France
The most famous Opera house in the world. Spectacular monument with gilded marble and lavish decor. Landmark named after its architect Charles Garnier. The Napoleon Ill style of architecture that was later an inspiration for many Opera houses around the world. Built for Opera performances now is mostly used for ballet, where best performers grace its stage. 1,5 English language tour, very relaxing and enjoyable walk through history of the most famous Opera house in the World. ‘Phantom of the Opera’ musical famous all around the world inspired by Opera Garnier paid tribute to this iconic testament by featuring phantom who lives in Paris Opera. I watched this fabulous show 3 times unfortunately not in Paris Opera. Opera Garnier is glorious architectural masterpiece, timeless French legacy.
The most beautiful building (in my opinion) of Paris. Has an amazing story of the phantom of the opera and it’s just breath taking. It have some free plays every week open to the public. If you like this, you will enjoy it very much.
An AMAZING architectural wonder. The entire building is like a piece of art. It cost around 12€ to take a self guided tour but it's well worth the cost! The terrace and the main salon are stunning and equally so the main opera center. As a craftsman myself I can only begin to imagine the time and skill put into creating this monumental building.
This is the magic opera you always want to come back. Visited Cinderella operetta and was totally amazed by dance, actors work and proficiency. I am totally in love with Paris Opera ♥️
A truly marvellous building. This is how you would imagine a perfect opera house would be; it's like entering a magical world from a beautiful book. An evening of Opera and ballet experienced here is even more enhanced by this magnificent environment. You can take a tour of the inside of the opera house, for which there is a fee, and there is also a shop which is freely accessed.
