Opéra Bastille

The Opèra Bastille was inaugurated in 1989 as a sister house to the Opèra Garnier. Both part of the National Opera of Paris, the Bastille was built with the aim of establishing an "affordable people's opera house". Located at the Place de la Bastille next to the magnificent July Column, the building has a distinctly futuristic look with its glass facade and steel design elements. The main auditorium seats up to 2,700 people, and primarily presents performances of opera, as well as occasional ballets and symphonic concerts . Two smaller stages host chamber music and recitals.
