Paris Travel Planner   Opera in Paris, France
Paris has several spectacular places to enjoy opera.




Opera thrives in Paris in the modern monstrosity known as the Opéra Bastille, as well as in the more beloved Opéra Garnier (or Palais Garnier), and if you enjoy opera, Paris is an excellent place to enjoy it during the season (September through May).

Paris being Paris, it's shouldn't surprise come as a surprise that there are additional spectacular places to enjoy opera in this city of the arts.

We saw a fine Rigoletto in the open air of the Jardin du Luxembourg, with the Palais de Luxembourg as the backdrop. Other grand Parisian edifices are used as settings as well.

The major venue for light opera and operetta— enjoyable whether you know French or not—is the Opéra Comique, 5 Rue Favart (Métro: Richelieu-Druout).
