Mitterrand's new opera house. In fact, the Paris National Opera House is the general name of the Garnier Opera House and the Bastille Opera House. The Bastille Opera House is a very modern building. Standing in the Bastille Square, it is easy to be attracted by its unique shape and decoration. The original intention of building this opera house is to lighten the performing burden of the Garnier Opera House and to create a modern and civilian cultural and artistic place. It has the most modern multi-functional stage facilities, starring in operas, and many world-class opera groups come to perform every year. I watched a German opera Wozzeck here, with English and French subtitles on the stage, but it took a lot of energy to switch between the stage and the screen above. If you stay in Paris for a long time, it's worth coming and experiencing.
The modern geometric cylindrical shape of the Bastille Opera House, which combines metal and large transparent windows, connects the interior and exterior spaces. The theatre hall can accommodate 2,700 spectators. It's at the subway station in the Bastille. The traffic is convenient. Often there are many wonderful performances, and I am lucky to see a wonderful opera here.
My wife and I watched Le Lac des Cygnes (Swan Lake) last winter on New Year's Eve at the Opera Bastille. It was amazing. The night was spectacular and, if you opt for the posh seats, you get champagne at intermission which makes everything better, if that was possible.
The opulence is almost overwhelming, but absolutely worth it. Don't forget to buy honey produced by the bees (on rooftop).
The Bastille Opera House - Paris National Opera House is a huge modern building. The theatre is staged by national artists and performing groups.
It is one of the largest opera houses in Paris and even Europe. Although the whole building is full of modern fashion elements, it also contains classical romantic feelings. The wonderful ballet haunts me, and the beautiful music is full of strong romantic atmosphere.
Designed by Canadians and built by Europeans, it was completed on the 200th anniversary of the Bastille Storm.
Very famous opera house, every night there are high-quality opera performance, like you can see one.
