The Opéra Garnier (or Palais Garnier) was built for the Paris Opera company in 1875 and is one of the most iconic opera houses in the world. Although most of the Paris Opera’s productions now take place in the larger and more modern Opéra Bastille, there’s a special place in the heart of Parisians for this older theater, which was the setting of the book (and musical, and films) of The Phantom of the Opera. Visitors can attend a concert or take a tour of the public areas of the theater, either with an audio guide or an expert on the building.

The experience is generally available in French, but staff are also on-hand to make sure that English-speakers can understand enough to work on the puzzles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s so special about the Opéra Garnier?

The Opéra Garnier is one of the icons of Second Empire Paris and has always been visited by the chicest members of Parisian society. Completed in 1875 and designed to be the home of the Paris Opera, today the Palais Garnier is mostly used for ballet performances. Its international fame comes mostly from its use as the setting of The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, a classic of French literature which has been successfully adapted into a musical theater sensation and several movies. Visitors will be able to see the stunning interior of the opulent theater, plus the famous chandelier and box 5, which was always to be left empty for the mysterious Phantom. Tours take between 1 and 2 hours, depending on whether you opt for the self-guided, audio-guided, or guided version.

What’s the best way to get tickets to performances?

Tickets to performances at the Palais Garnier often sell out in advance, so it’s best to book a few weeks in advance or a few months for a new production. It is sometimes possible to get cheap tickets on the morning of a show, the easiest way to buy these is to visit the box office in person at 10 am on the date of the performance you want to see.

Are there performances of anything except opera?

The Opéra Garnier now hosts as many ballet performances as they do operas, if not slightly more ballet. The opera house also hosts concerts and recitals, including a series of chamber music performed by musicians of the Paris Opera Orchestra.

Will kids enjoy the tour of the opera house?

A trip to the Opéra Garnier won’t necessarily thrill all children, especially very young ones, but some children will find it extremely interesting! There is a special children’s version of the audio guide available, and if you opt for the guided tour then the tour guide will tailor parts of their tour to ensure that any children present are included and engaged.
