Programming for Young Audiences

Bookings for the 2019/2020 season’s performances for young audiences together with the Academy programme will open on June 18, 2019. Contact:

Bookings for school groups and music and dance schools can be made from September 9th 2016 onwards for all the season’s performances. To book, please return a completed option request form as soon as possible, together with information on your class project to:

Opera national de Paris – Animation et Jeune Public
120, rue de Lyon - 75012 Paris

Option requests will be handled in the order in which they arrive. They will then be processed in the chronological order of the performances. You will receive a reply as the performance calendar progresses, along with payment instructions if applicable, and information on the performance to help you prepare your students for the visit. Priority will be given to schools that have never had the opportunity to participate in any of the Opera’s activities before. The sheer volume of requests may result in the need to limit bookings to 1 or 2 classes per school.

School matinées at €5 per ticket: seats set aside for accompanying adults are free to a maximum of one accompanying adult per 10 students. Additional accompanying adults will be charged at the student rate.
To help ensure that the performance runs smoothly, all students are under the responsibility of their accompanying adults for the duration of the performance.

The disabled: Bookings must be made in writing and mailed as per the terms outlined above. Children and young people with physical or mental disabilities will enjoy a personalized welcome at the school matinées. (A maximum of one group per performance).
