The Institution

With more than 350 years of history, the Paris Opera is renowned for its qualitative and wide programming, both at the Palais Garnier and the Bastille Opera house, but also for the unique architecture of its two theaters open to visitors during the day.

With more than 400 curtain raises per year, the Paris Opera offers rich ballet, opera and concert programs, as well as a programming specially made for a younger audience.

The Paris Opera’s mission is to make works from the operatic and choreographic heritage available to as many people as possible, to promote the creation and performance of contemporary works, and to contribute to the professional training and development of singers and dancers.

With almost 900,000 spectators each year, welcoming new audiences remains at the heart of the Paris Opera’s mission. To do so, the Institution is always developing new projects to share and better communicate the taste and discovery of opera and dance.
