Message to spectators of the performance of Il Barbiere di Siviglia on Saturday 11 January 2020 at the Opéra Bastille

As a result of a national and interprofessional strike followed by some of the Opera’s staff, the performance of Il Barbiere di Siviglia scheduled on Saturday 11 January 2020 is unfortunately cancelled.

The Paris Opera apologizes for this cancellation. Given the right of employees to declare industrial action up until the scheduled performance time, the Opera was not able to inform the audience earlier and apologizes for this too.

The Paris Opera proposes either:

  • A ticket exchange1 for another performance date of this opera, according to availability2 or for another production of the 2019-2020 season.
  • Ticket exchange will be possible until Saturday 18 January 2020:
    - at the box office of the Opéra Bastille and the Palais Garnier,
    - by telephone on + 33 1 73 60 23 23, from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.

  • A refund:
    - the purchases paid with a credit card (online, by phone or by mail, excluding purchases made at the box office) will automatically be refunded from Monday 20 January 2020 on the bank account used for the payment;
    - for the others: refund by post, within approximately three months, after reception of ticket(s), personal details and a Visa, MasterCard, American Express payment card number along with expiry date, or a French bank "RIB" (I.B.A.N with the code B.I.C).
