Your tickets for performances of the Paris Opera House at the Opera Bastille.

 

The season 2017-2018:

The third season of Stéphane Lissner at the head of the Paris National Opera and already a statement in Paris, the city that is one of the world's leading capitals of the Opera. The Opera Bastille offers high-quality shows with top performers and is likely to be fully booked at many dates.

 

Reserve your places promptly, especially for what promises to be one of the biggest highlights of the international season, the opera Don Carlos. Having chosen the original version in French of this masterpiece by Verdi, the artistic team aims high with an exceptional distribution in more ways than one. Understandably, the biggest tenor Jonas Kaufmann is present but the artists around him are at the same exceptional level. Sonya Yoncheva, Elina Garanca, Ludovic Tézier and Ildar Abdrazakov form a dream quintet.

 

But far from being an isolated production, the same excellence is also found with the new staging of La Bohème and the exceptional arrival of Gustavo Dudamel, a highly-anticipated conductor, in the orchestra pit of the Bastille Opera. The soprano Sonya Yoncheva, new international singing star embodies the moving Mimí alternating with a rising star Nicole Car.

 

Every great opera house must invite the superstars and Paris is really spoiled (we can not fail to mention Philippe Jordan, musical director and adored conductor of the audience). Roberto Alagna and Marcelo Alvarez are playing Il Trovatore facing the superb Sondra Radvanovsky. The soprano is equally distributed in A ballo in maschera alternating with another sublime artist, Anja Harteros. The undescribable Bryn Terfel, finally offers Paris one of his best roles, Sir John Falstaff. We only miss one last international superstar to complete the picture. Anna Netrebko is in Paris to play one of her biggest roles, La Traviata. Plácido Domingo will be her partner for three performances that are already being announced as historical.

 

But opera also stands for beautiful duets. The 2017-2018 season of Bastille opens with Die lustige Witwe, bringing together Véronique Gens and Thomas Hampson, two wonderful artists. Peter Mattei and Andreas Schager share Parsifal's poster (directed by the well-known Richard Jones) with also Wagnerian Anja Kampe.

 

Other productions are also remarkable as Benvenuto Cellini, Berlioz's little-played masterpiece that is staged by Terry Guilliam, former Monty Python. Boris Godunov is another highlight of the season with the arrival of the conductor Vladimir Jurowski and staging by Ivo Van Hove. With Janácek's "From the House of the Dead", another great name of the theater is being reverenced, Patrice Chéreau.

 

The Bastille Opera also includes ballet performances such as the classic Don Quixote by Nureyev, the splendid Romeo and Juliet by Sasha Waltz or the exceptional Millepied / Béjart evening with its famous Bolero.

 

The season of the Opéra National de Paris is divided between its two main halls. You will find the overview of the 2017-2018 season of the Palais Garnier by following this link.

Informations sur Opéra Bastille

From its beginnings under Louis XIV to the present day, including the construction of the Palais Gamier under Napoleon III, the history of the Paris Opera has been marked by the wishes and whims of the French government. The decision to build a new opera on the Place de la Bastille is no exception, made by Frangois Mitterrand less than a year after being elected President. A competition was organized, and of the 750 projects presented, the one designed by the Uruguayan-Canadian architect Carl Ott won. The new building, whose large ground surface ostentatiously marks the site where the French Revolution broke out, was inaugurated during the bicentennial celebrations of that same Revolution in 1989.

 

From the Place de la Bastille, the building's glass facade, with its "aleatory" lighting designed by Yann Kersale, suggests the sober modernism of its interior, even more so because the interior uses the same construction materials as the exterior, symbolizing a desire to open out to the public. Once inside, one can discover the warmth of the light wood that adorns the large 2703-seat hall with its proscenium stage. But the building barely stops here, for one must imagine the enormous backstage that takes up 55 per cent of the edifice's total volume, the six underground stories of technical premises, the workshops that make and stock the mobile sets as well as the costumes, not to mention the Gounod Hall, that has a stage identical to the main one, used for rehearsals. Designed around a symmetrical axis that is symbolized by the sculpted tuning forks that decorate the public premises, the Bastille Opera is a formidable computerized machine for staging opera productions, employing the population of a veritable city-within-a-city.

 

The conductor Myung-Whun Chung faced the difficult task of starting up this machine. The audience discovered productions staged by Bob Wilson or Peter Sellars, which it did not always unanimously applaud. But today, in full possession of its impressive technical means, permitting the rotation of different productions, the Bastille Opera proposes the most diverse performances. Currently managed by Hugues Gall and his music director James Conlon, revivals, premieres and major productions now share the season's billing, at a pace that leaves the audience little respite.

Since 2014, Stépahne Lissner is the Director of the Paris Opera.
