Opera Paris Bastille providing first class entertainment

The programme at the Opera Paris Bastille consists of a variety of opera shows, recitals and ballet performances, delivered by the crème de la crème of Parisian talent. The orchestra, ballet dance troupe and chorus line are all permanent artists at the Opera Paris Bastille. You'll enjoy first class performances at this venue, with classic shows such as La Boheme, Tristan and Isolde, Orpheus and Eurydice and L'italiana in Algiers regularly featuring.

The Opera Paris Bastille is a relatively new venue, being initiated in 1982, as a request from the former President Mitterand, for an opera venue that would deliver more popular and contemporary works, with a much more relaxed and light-hearted tone, compared to l'Opera Garnier programmes. The striking venue, designed by the talented architect Carlos Ott, seats up to 2,700 in the auditorium.

The Opera Paris Bastille was inaugurated in 1989, to mark the Bicentenary of the French Revolution. The location of the Opera Paris Bastille has a rich historic significance. In fact, this location is the very place that saw the beginnings of the French Revolution, on the 14th July 1789.
