Wonderful

The outside of the building is wonderful, but the most impressive part is inside. The grand staircase is impressive, so is the museum library, hallways, the pylon of the witch, the great hall, and the Rotundas of the Sun and Moon. You can access the balcony and have a complete view of the square.

Fantastic experience

Paris has two opera houses: Palais Garnier and the Bastille. It is true, however, that the word "opera" in Paris evokes images of the former, older venue,but the reality is that the latter tends to offer a more opera performances.

I was excited to go see a performance at the Palais Garnier, so I bought tickets for the ballet "The Lady of the Camellias". If I remember correctly, third-row seats were around 30 something euros (very cheap) and the view was excellent.

It was an amazing experience; not just the ballet itself, but exploring the buildings, stairs and salons during intermission....it left me speechless! Every corner has a secret to discover. It was a really great experience!

Opulent building

This opulent building was built for Napoleon III in 1862 and designed by Charles Garnier. It has a really striking and recognizable look thanks to its mix of materials like stone, marble and bronze, as well as styles ranging from classical to baroque, and countless columns, frescos, and sculptures.

After several interruptions (including war), the Palais Garnier was finally opened in 1875. It was originally home to both the opera and Paris Ballet, one of the best dance companies in the world, but is now almost exclusively dedicated to dance after the Bastille opened in 1989.

It is one of the largest theaters in Europe and has a capacity of 2,200. Opening hours are 10:00 to 17:00, and it's closed on holidays.

The stunning Church of La Madeleine and Jardin du Luxembourg are also nearby.

Rally de paris

Llegamos por la tarde al Palais Garnier, queríamos visitarlo.
Nos ofrecían un tour, lo discutimos, decidimos comprar una entrada para el día siguiente, pues disponíamos de tiempo, y disfrutar de la obra ”Tosca” de Puccini.
Eran las 19:35, se nos ha echado el tiempo encima. Nos quedan veinticinco minutos para llegar desde Joinville-le-Pont hasta el Palais Garnier.

- ¿Cómo llegamos? La única solución, coger el coche.
Llevábamos cinco días en París y no se nos había ocurrido circular en automóvil, utilizábamos el metro o el autobús. Sin conocer la ciudad nos aventuramos. Dirección Noroeste.
¡Manos a la obra! A la izquierda, a la derecha, todo recto, esa señal nos indica que por aquí no se puede, adelantamos, semáforo verde, quedan diez minutos, no sabemos dónde estamos.
¡Buah! El Boulevard des Capucines ¡Por aquí!
En un ejercicio de orientación mental nos plantamos en la Opera de París a las 19:55. Ahora aparcar. Más ejercicio de concentración. ¡Un sitio libre! No hay prohibición de aparcar. No me lo creo.

Corrimos hasta la puerta de la Opera. Aún estamos a tiempo. En la taquilla un cartel.
Si usted llega tarde, se tendrá que esperar hasta el intermedio.
Le damos las entradas al conserje y nos dice que sin problema, adelante. Nos sentamos y suenan los primeros acordes de la orquesta. ¡A disfrutar!

Si repetimos el rally diez veces, nueve veces nos hubiéramos perdido por las calles de París, pero ese día acertamos. Pudimos disfrutar de buena música y visitar la Opera de París.
¡Suerte y adelante!

The Opera Garnier, also known as Palais Garnier or Opera de Paris is one of the most characteristic buildings Arrondisement IX (District) Parisian. Napoleon III ordered its construction the architect Charles Garnier who performed in the Neo-Baroque style. It opened in 1875 and retained his title until 1978 when it was renamed the National Theatre Opera in Paris, then in 1989 the Paris Opera was moved to the newly constructed building of the Bastille Opera, calling the first Palais Garnier or National Academy of Music. The Palais Garnier, which nevertheless will be remembered as the famous Paris Opera, has an approximate capacity of 2200 seats and a stage that accommodates 450 artists. His style is monumental and is richly decorated with friezes multicoles, marble, columns and statues everywhere. The interior is decorated with red velvet, nymphs and cherubs and gold leaf. The main auditorium spider weighs more than 2 tons and the paintings of the dome belong to Marc Chagall. The Palais Garnier and its underground caves were chosen by Gaston Leroux to place the plot and characters of his famous Phantom of the Opera, which has led to the musical and several movies. If you watched the musical, I will mention that I saw it twice, once in San Francisco and one in New York, at different times .... And the scene in which the central lamp seems to fall, at the request of the ghost, of course, never forget. Another thing to see it on film, because when you're sitting in the audience and while spider like display comes up ... You run out of breath. I attended the Palais Garnier on two occasions, a long time ago, on my first trip to Paris, where he witnessed an unforgettable ballet, Giselle. Again, later for a tour, I will say it is worth.

La Opera Garnier, también conocida como Palacio Garnier u Opera de París es uno de los edificios más característicos del IX Arrondisement (Distrito) Parisino.
Napoleon III ordenó su construcción al Arquitecto Charles Garnier quien lo llevó a cabo en el estilo Neobarroco.
Fue inaugurado en el año 1875 y conservó su título hasta el año 1978 en que fue renombrada Teatro Nacional de la Opera de París y luego en el año 1989 la Opera de París fue trasladada al recientemente construido edificio de Opera de la Bastilla, llamándose el primero Palacio Garniere o Academia Nacional de la Música.
El Palacio Garnier, que pese a todo será recordado como la famosa Opera de París, tiene una capacidad aproximada de 2200 butacas y un escenario en el que caben 450 artistas.
Su estilo es monumental y está opulentamente decorado con frisos multicoles, mármoles ,columnas y estatuas por doquier.
El interior está adornado con terciopelo rojo, ninfas y querubines y también hojas doradas.
La araña del auditorio central pesa más de 2 toneladas y las pinturas de la cúpula pertenecen a Marc Chagall.
El Palacio Garnier y sus cuevas subterraneas fueron elegidos por Gaston Leroux para situar la trama y personajes de su célebre Fantasma de la Opera, que ha dado lugar al musical y varias películas.
Si vieron el musical, les adelanto que yo lo vi dos veces, una en San Francisco y otra en Nueva York, en diferentes épocas.... Y la escena en que la lámpara central parece caerse, a instancias del fantasma, por supuesto, nunca la olvidaré. Otra cosa es verla en película, pues cuando estás sentado en la platea y vez que se viene encima semajante araña... Te quedás sin aliento.
Concurrí al Palacio Garnier en dos oportunidades, una hace mucho tiempo, en mi primer viaje a París, adonde presencié un ballet inolvidable, Giselle. Otra vez, más adelante para una visita guiada, que les diré vale la pena.

The Palais Garnier, also called old opera, because the new is in the Place de la Bastille, and also called Royal Academy of music is to my taste and perhaps one of the most sumptuous buildings, surprising and carazteristicos of París.Obra of Charles Garnier, opened in 1875, by order of Napoleon, who curiously did not get to see it finished. One of the opera houses the world's largest, with a capacity for 2200 spectators and a stage for 450 artists .... Impressive. Very attractive building, monumental and striking, multicolored marble built, luxury Greek style statues and beautiful and imposing columns, with a velvet interior and a chandelier of 8 toneladas.Lugar where people of the time not only met from the cultural point of view, was also a social gathering place where like shine glamurosamente.Hoy days is visited by many tourists, art lovers and music, and not only enjoy entertainment at home, abroad there is always a group of amateurs exposing their music to art. One suggestion, to see and photograph the magnificent dome of green, you owe yourself away a little bit, I personally did the photos from the Avenue de l'Opéra, then walk straight will you do some beautiful photos of the facade, but did not appreciate part of its construction makes this so special palace.

El palacio Garnier,también llamado antigua opera ,pues la nueva se encuentra en la plaza de la Bastilla, y también denominado Real academia de la música es quizá y para mi gusto uno de los edificios mas suntuosos,sorprendentes y carazteristicos de París.Obra de Charles Garnier, inagurado en 1875,por mandato de Napoleón,que curiosamente no llego a verlo terminado. Uno de los palacios de la opera mas grandes del mundo,con capacidad para 2200 espectadores y con un escenario para 450 artistas....Impresionante.
Edificio muy vistoso,monumental y llamativo,construido con mármol multicolor,lujosas estatuas de estilo griego y preciosas e imponentes columnas,con un interior de terciopelo y una lámpara de araña de 8 toneladas.Lugar donde la gente de la época no solo se reunian desde el punto de vista cultural,era además un lugar de encuentro social,donde gustaba lucirse glamurosamente.Hoy en día es visitado por numerosos turistas,amantes del arte y de la música,y sus espectaculos no solo se disfrutan en el interior,en el exterior siempre hay algún grupo de aficcionados a la música exponiendo su arte.
Una sugerencia,para poder ver y fotografiar su grandiosa cúpula de color verde,debeis alejaros un poquito,yo ,personalmente hice las fotos desde la avenida de la opera,pues a pie de escalera hareis unas bonitas fotos de la fachada ,pero no se apreciara parte de su construcción que hace que este palacio sea tan especial.

Lopera of paris

Built in 1875, the Teatro Opera Paris is a magnificent building which is characterized by different styles, from classical to baroque, different materials including stone, marble and bronze. The beautiful and magnificent façade and the exterior consists of columns, friezes and sculptures. Visited inside (entrance fee), the Opera House is no longer a representation of the works in Paris, except for the dancing! The sculpture on the right of the facade is just dance, its original is kept at the Musée d'Orsay. Do not just see and photograph the facade across the street, but approach to see close details! Just close you will account the size of the building. We then took the road to the right, and we cos'ì also noted the depth of the theater! Curious are also the lights of the theater: note the base, shaped vessel!

L’opera di paris

Costruito nel 1875, il Teatro Opera di Paris è un edificio sontuoso che si caratterizza da diversi stili, dal classico al barocco, diversi materiali tra cui la pietra, il marmo e il bronzo.
La bella e sontuosa facciata e l’esterno si compone di colonne, fregi e sculture.
Visitabile al suo interno (ingresso a pagamento), l’Opera non è più luogo di rappresentazione delle opere parigine, eccezion fatta per i balletti! La scultura a destra della facciata rappresenta proprio la danza, il suo originale è conservato al Musée d’Orsay.
Non limitatevi a vedere e fotografare la facciata dall’altra parte della strada, ma avvicinatevi per ammirare da vicino i particolari! Proprio da vicino vi renderete conto dell’imponenza dell’edificio. Noi abbiamo poi preso la strada a destra, e abbiamo cos’ì osservato anche la profondità del teatro!
Curiosi sono anche i lampioni del teatro: da notare la base, a forma di vascello!

With no doubt one of the most famous monuments of Paris and the favorite capital for tourists, the Opera Garnier absolutely worth a detour during a tour of the city. I must say it is impressive with its main façade richly decorated emblematic of the second half of the nineteenth century, numerous statues and decorations. Historical monument since 1923 it hosts many excellent performances and concerts. Do not miss!

Comptant sans aucun doute parmi les monuments historiques les plus célèbres de la capitale parisienne et les préférés des touristes, l'Opéra Garnier mérite absolument un petit détour lors d'un visite de la ville. Il faut dire qu'il a de quoi impressionner avec sa façade principale richement décorée emblématique de la seconde moitié du XIXème siècle, ses nombreuses statues et décorations. Classé monument historique depuis 1923 il accueille de nombreuses représentations et concerts d'excellente qualité. A ne pas manquer!

A visit in the thirteenth theater Opera in Paris since the founding of this institution by Louis XIV in 1669, and I quote, the Opera Palais Garnier in Paris. It was finally inaugurated January 15, 1875. Inside: soft light through the atmosphere light and soil color, ceiling and walls. The grand staircase 30 meters high with these balconies is one of the most famous places of the Palais Garnier. Bronze candelabra, large statues of women, ceilings representing different allegories of music, golden corridors with their ice-covered roof tiles with a background in gold and warm color ... This is a great show, even before entering the same room "show"!

Une petite visite dans la treizième salle d'Opéra à Paris depuis la fondation de cette institution par Louis XIV en 1669, je cite, l'Opéra Palais Garnier de Paris. Ce dernier fut finalement inauguré le 15 janvier 1875. A l'intérieur: Ambiance douce grâce aux lumières légères et à la couleur des sols, du plafond et des murs. Le grand escalier de 30 mètres de hauteur avec ces balcons est un des lieux les plus célèbres du Palais Garnier. Torchères en bronze, grandes statues de femmes, plafonds représentant différentes allégories de la musique, couloirs dorés avec leurs glaces, voûte couverte de mosaïques avec un fond en or et des chaudes couleur... C'est un grand spectacle, avant même d'entrer dans la salle même de "spectacle"!

The Opera Garnier or Palais Garnier is one of structural elements of the ninth arrondissement of Paris and the landscape of the French capital. Located at the end of the Avenue de l'Opéra, near the metro station of the same name, the building has become a typical monument of architecture and eclectic historicist style of the second half of the nineteenth century and in the continuity of the transformations of Paris carried out by Napoleon III and Haussmann prefect. This construction has long been considered the "Paris Opera", but since the opening of the Opera Bastille in 1989, it is referred by the name of its author, Charles Garnier. Both sites are now grouped in the public, industrial and commercial "Paris Opera" establishment.

L’Opéra Garnier, ou Palais Garnier, est un des éléments structurants du IXe arrondissement de Paris et du paysage de la capitale française. Situé à l'extrémité de l'avenue de l'Opéra, près de la station de métro du même nom, l'édifice s'impose comme un monument particulièrement représentatif de l'architecture éclectique et du style historiciste de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle et s'inscrit dans la continuité des transformations de Paris menées à bien par Napoléon III et le préfet Haussmann.

Cette construction a longtemps été considérée comme l'« Opéra de Paris », mais depuis l'ouverture de l'Opéra Bastille en 1989, on la désigne par le seul nom de son auteur : Charles Garnier. Les deux sites sont aujourd'hui regroupés au sein de l'établissement public, industriel et commercial « Opéra national de Paris ».

Opra de paris

The Opera Garnier or Paris Opera is the primary opera of the capital: the more traditional and more in keeping with the classical architecture of Paris. True masterpiece, it was built by Charles Garnier in almost 15 years, from 1862 to 1875 and is a historical monument since 1923. The exterior consists of four walls, with many details: sculptures referring to allegories and various decorations. The interior is completely gorgeous, it's also why it's called the "Palais Garnier". These pictures were taken from the opera side of the Boulevard Haussmann. This is the "back" of the building, a view that changes a bit of the main facade. Shown here is the backyard of the building, which allows the entry of employees and transport of sets and props.

Opéra de paris

L'Opéra Garnier, ou Opéra National de Paris, est le principal opéra de la capitale: le plus traditionnel et le plus en accord avec l'architecture classique de Paris.
Véritable chef d'oeuvre, il fut construit par Charles Garnier sur presque 15 ans, de 1862 à 1875, et est classé monument historique depuis 1923.
L'extérieur est constitué de 4 façades, avec de nombreux détails: sculptures faisant référence à des allégories, ainsi que divers décors.
L'intérieur est complètement somptueux, c'est aussi pour cela qu'on l'appelle le "Palais Garnier".

Ces photos de l'opéra ont été prises du côté du boulevard Haussmann.
C'est donc l'"arrière" du bâtiment, une vue qui change un peu de la façade principale. On voit ici la cour arrière du bâtiment, qui permet l'entrée des employés et l'acheminement des décors et accessoires.

Delos is one oldest buildings and best preserved of Paris. The old folk opera, and even more famous since the film be shot on Phantom of the Opera. It is a beautiful building that is worth visiting for its great excalinatas, their lamps representing human sculptures of great beauty, its roofs, its ballroom, etc. During my trip was one of the places I most wanted to see, and I was not disappointed. I recommend it. Also, for lovers of photography is fascinating. The metro station is operating as you come out of the building you meet and was one of the more traditionally commercial areas of Paris.

Representa uno delos edificios mas antiguos y mejor conservados de París. La antigua opera popular, y mas famosa aún desde que se rodase la película el fantasma de la opera. Es un edificio preciosos que merece la pena visitar, por sus grandes escalinatas, sus lamparas que representan esculturas humanas de gran belleza, sus techos, su salón de baile, etc.
Durante mi viaje era uno de los lugares que mas deseaba ver, y no me defraudo. Lo recomiendo. Además, para los amantes de la fotografía resulta fascinante.
La parada de metro es opera, según salís de el os encontráis con el edificio y esta en una de las zonas mas tradicionalmente comerciales de París.
