The Paris Opera 350th anniversary

Opera Garnier
350 years ago, on June 28th 1669, Louis XIV founded the Académie Royale de Musique (Royal Academy of Music), the world's first permanent opera house. Bringing together the world's finest singers, musicians and dancers, the Paris Opera was born, tasked with promoting the finest lyrical and dance arts in Paris and across France's largest cities.
To celebrate the anniversary of this inaugural moment in the history of French music, this exclusive visit offers the opportunity to discover the exceptional history of the Paris Opera and its most iconic artistic and architectural masterpieces.

Alongside your tour guide, you'll unravel the 350-year history of the Paris Opera through exclusive collections housed in two temporary exhibitions:
From 28th May to 1st September 2019: An Aria from Italy — The Paris Opera from Louis XIV to the French Revolution.
From 24th October 2019 to 2nd February 2020: The Grand Opera

Beside immersing yourself in the heart of the Library-Museum, you'll visit the Rotonde des Abonnés , the auditorium, with its famous Chagall ceiling, as well as Claude Lévêque's 'Saturnales' art installation in the Rotonde des Abonnés, alongside the Bassin de la Pythia and in the Grand Escalier.
Through this tour, your guide will unveil the artistic mysteries of an architectural marvel which, over the last 350 years, has defined art movements with its unique style, a crossroads between tradition and modernity.
