The Opera Garnier: a building for lyrical and choreographic art

Inaugurated in 1875, the Opera Garnier is today the heartbeat of world-class ballets in Paris. Constructed by Charles Garnier for Napoleon III, this edifice was built on a 12 000 square-metre land requiring more than fifteen years of work. The marshland, the Franco-Prussian War, and the fall of the Second Empire caused a delay to the site’s progress, as ordered by the Emperor. Nonetheless, Garnier would continue to complete his work until the end, and this in particular with his friend, Gustave Eiffel, who would be part of the construction of both edifice’s workshops and shops.

The dance at the Opera Garner: meccas of ballets in Paris

Ballets in Paris, whether classical or contemporary, are nowadays a field for creation and inventiveness. The Opera Garnier presents traditional choreographic ballet, but also modern performances such as Pina Bausch’s work. The Opera National troupe enjoys an impressively strong international reputation due to a constant and high level of artistic commitment.

In the past, the ticket price to attend the ballets in Paris could be quite expensive, letting some of us at the bottom of the sublime grand escalier (large staircases) have access. However, the Opera Garnier is now offering quite reasonable entrance tickets all throughout the year! Grab the opportunity to admire the incredible ceiling painted by art master Chagall, and of course, enjoy the technical and artistic qualities from a unique troupe in the world of ballets in Paris.
