The tradition of opera in Paris goes back as far as the 'Sun King', Louis XIV, who founded the Paris Opera (Opéra national de Paris) in the 17th century. The grand 19th century Palais Garnier and the state‐of‐the‐art Opéra Bastille are home to some of the world's most impressive opera and ballet performances. In the summer months, opera‐lovers can also enjoy splendid open‐air festival productions in some of Paris' fascinating historic palaces.
