For two seasons photographer Patrick Tourneboeuf took possession of the Palais Garnier and the Opéra Bastille, from the public areas to the most secret spaces. This magician of chiaroscuro worked with a view camera using extended pose times. All of a sudden even the darkest corners of both theatres are reborn in light.

Christoph W. Gluck / Opéra dansé de Pina Bausch
Orphée et Eurydice is one of Pina Bausch's major works. The choreographer gives life and form to Gluck’s score and establishes a permanent dialogue between song and dance, doubling each of the principal roles. Going beyond mythology, the ballet evokes the fragility of the human condition as it descends into painful introspection.

In 1835, when all Europe was obsessed by Romanticism, the vogue for Bellini's final masterpiece, I Puritani, a tale of impossible love and vengeance set in 17th century England swept all before it, including the composer himself.

It was Elektra that in 1906 brought together Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal. With its huge orchestra and vocal writing that pushed singing technique to its limits, Elektra, a one-act tragedy of unprecedented darkness and violence, brought Post-Wagnerianism to a blazing apotheosis.

One of the Paris Opera's missions is to protect its public image, nowadays used far too often for commercial reasons by third parties without any authorisation. The Opera also has to develop its intangible heritage by setting up a brand policy enabling it to communicate its values in an original manner.

Gioacchino Rossini
The beautiful Isabella sails off to Algiers in search of her lover Lindoro, held prisoner by the tyrant Mustafa. However, the ship runs aground and the adventure begins... An opera buffa infused with madness as only Rossini knows how: the sudden malfunction of the machine he himself has created.

La Traviata
After Dumas fils, it was Verdi’s turn to immortalize the Dame aux camélias in a cruel and sublime masterpiece, one of the repertoire’s most gripping. Benoît Jacquot directs Diana Damrau in this opera of love and sacrifice.

Rudolf Nureyev
The “Ballet of ballets,” Sleeping Beauty remains one of the jewels in the heritage of dance. Virtuosity together with sumptuous sets and costumes recreate the splendour of one of the most brilliant masterpieces in the classical repertoire.

Jules Massenet
Werther is a long requiem, a "lacrimosa dies illa", a day full of tears and, without doubt, the most personal of all Massenet's works. Roberto Alagna and Karine Deshayes portray the two unhappy lovers in the now legendary production of Benoît Jacquot, conducted by Michel Plasson.

L'incoronazione di Poppea
Neither Fortune nor Virtue can vie with Love who, with a mere wave of the hand, can change the world: such is the message conveyed by Monteverdi’s exquisitely enrapturing music. A poet of space and movement, director Robert Wilson writes a new chapter in his history with the Paris Opera.

Angelin Preljocaj
Le Parc follows its course through the codes of seduction, from initial encounters through to total self-surrender. To music by Mozart, Angelin Preljocaj questions the relationship with the other, and subtly blends the classical with the modern.

Georg Friedrich Haendel
Handel's treatment of the sorceress who transforms men into beast, rock or tree, is a humane and moving portrait of suffering womanhood. Robert Carsen's production finely exploits this web of hidden desires.

Vincenzo Bellini
When adapting the legend of the doomed lovers to opera, librettist Romani gave it a still gloomier mood: the quarrel between the two families becomes an implacable and bloody feud. Karine Deshayes and Ekaterina Siurina lend their voices to Romeo and Juliette to complement Bellini’s intensely dramatic music.

Giacomo Puccini
In Paris, a young man and a young woman meet, fall in love, are separated by life and then reunited again before the ultimate separation. Each phrase of La Bohème touches us for ever.

Presentation by Brigitte Lefèvre
The Bolshoi Theatre Ballet presents Lost Illusions, a creation by Alexei Ratmansky, based on the novel by Balzac. The choreographer’s neoclassical language stands out in a great narrative ballet with a French flavour. This is a grand story of thwarted love, ambition and disillusionment in which the dancers reveal their talents and the choreographer, another facet of his work....
