London isn’t the only place that offers incredible Opera nights! Paris Opera dates back to 1669, during the reign of King Louis XIV, and is a great way to experience historical culture. Since the Paris Opera Company was founded, it has been passed through more than 25 different name changed and 13 different venues.
The official name of the company is the Opera National de Paris, but it’s often just referred to as the Opera. The current venue for the Opera is Palais Garnier, which was built all the way back in 1875. The grand building is absolutely stunning, and even if you’re not going to an Opera show, you should pay a visit to the building.
Classic ballets and operas are still held in this venue, although recently it has branched out into more modern performances. It’s great fun for all the family, and is a chance to get dressed up and have fun in the capital city.
