Guided tour in French

The Paris National Opera invites you behind the scenes at the Bastille Opera House.

These visits are structured in two parts: a tour of the public areas and an exploration of the backstage area. They last 90 minutes and include an overall tour of the theatre with a presentation of its history, architecture and its different activities. The ticket gives access to both public and professional areas of the theatre including the public foyers, the auditorium and the performances spaces.

The Paris Opera reserves the right to restrict or deny access to the auditiorium, cutting room and workshops for technical and/or artistic reasons.
