Find the complete 2019-2020 Opéra Bastille Season and book your tickets online now.
The seasons flow into each other and are similar at the Opéra national de Paris, to the delight of music lovers as exceptional artists are once again at the rendez-vous.
Before talking about the great event of the season 2019-2020, the Ring of Wagner, note that Paris will be able to applaud the huge star Anna Netrebko at the height of her glory in the role of Adriana Lecouvreur. You should buy tickets as soon as possible to make sure not to miss out on these four unique performances. Another superstar, Jonas Kaufmann finally sings in Paris one of his biggest roles (Siegmund in Die Walküre). For these performances also, it is imperative to book opera tickets as soon as possible because the event is first-rate. For every major opera house, offering the Ring of Nibelungen, the famous tetralogy of Wagner, is a real challenge. The Opéra Bastille is ideal to welcome the extravagance of these four operas where the staging of Calixto Bieito, very good actor director, is expected particularly with the refined and deliberate direction of Philippe Jordan and a very nice cast (Andreas Schager in the role of Siegfried, Iain Paterson in Wotan).
Another very attractive opera production, of the baroque genre, arrives at the Opéra Bastille with Les Indes galantes of Rameau. The masterpiece is directed by the excellent Leonardo García Alarcòn, who brings together a troupe with the finest of Francophone singing (Sabine Devieilhe, Jodie Devos, Stanislas de Barbeyrac, Matthias Vidal ...) and Clément Cogitore who signs his very first realization in opera.
Inaugurated more than thirty years ago, the Opera Bastille has flagship productions that we find again with happiness like Puccini's Madama Butterfly, the perfect and attractive success of Robert Wilson. Another unforgettable show, The Tales of Hoffmann with the impressive staging of Robert Carsen is taken in reprise with a formidable cast (Michael Fabiano, Laurent Naouri, Jodie Devos, Ailyn Perez, Gaëlle Arquez ...). These are the encounters between the artists and the repertoire that offer all its value to this beautiful season 2019-2020. Manon de Massenet, a great masterpiece of comic opera, is entrusted to the beautiful soprano Pretty Yende. Her partners are luxurious with Ludovic Tézier and Benjamin Bernheim. The exceptional tenor is the true revelation of recent years. He also stars in Puccini's La Bohème (alternating with Vittorio Grigòlo and Francesco Demuro) where he responds to Elena Stikhina, a soprano that music lovers must follow closely.
Speaking of tenors, what would a season be without the huge Roberto Alagna on display? It is advisable to book your tickets at the Opera Bastille to attend a performance of Verdi's Don Carlo in the Italian version with the beautiful soprano Aleksandra Kurzak and the incredible Anita Rachvelishvili, probably the best mezzo today! She is also featuring in a highly anticipated production. Prince Igor Borodin embodied by the impressive Evgeny Nikitin is led by Philippe Jordan, a sign of the importance of this performance! In the Russian repertoire, he is happy to be able to applaud the immense René Pape in Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov. Some great Italian operas are on display, such as Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia, where Florian Sempey's Figaro and Lisette Oropesa, today's big star, are happily represented. French soprano Elsa Dreisig finally tackles the big roles in Paris with I Puritani of Bellini (with Javier Camarena) and Rigoletto by Verdi (with Zeljko Lucic and Frédéric Antoun). Note that the production is directed by Speranza Scappucci, the great conductor that all the halls covet. The Opera Bastille also offers great ballets and concerts. Philippe Jordan conducts the fabulous Opera Orchestra of Paris in a Mahler program with the exceptional Matthias Goerne. On the dance side, Raymonda by Rudolf Nureyev and a Balanchine program are highly anticipated. All bookings are open. Hurry! Discover now the season 2018-19 of the Palais Garnier
