Find the complete 2023-2024 Opéra Bastille Season and book your Opera, Concert and Ballet Tickets online now.

The 2023-2024 season of the Opéra national de Paris concocted by Alexander Neef, director of the great institution, José Martínez, director of dance, and Gustavo Dudamel, the musical director, is a great success.

Even if emblematic ballets are the highlights of the great Bastille ship, it is mainly the operas that are expected at the Opéra Bastille.

For the ballet, the great stage on Bastille place welcomes two absolute masterpieces of the white ballet signed Tchaikovsky. The Nutcracker for the December 2023 holidays and at the end of the season, Swan Lake by Ivanov, Petipa and Rudolf Nureyev are a must-see at least once in a lifetime. It is advisable to book these dance performances in Paris as soon as possible as demand is always high.

Another iconic ballet is Rudolf Nureyev's superb Don Quixote. This is not a Cervantes year and yet another Don Quixote is on the bill at the Opéra Bastille with the return of Massenet's opera. It is at the Palais Garnier that we will admire other great titles such as La Fille mal gardée or Giselle and that we will applaud the magnificent choreographers of the season, Pina Bausch, Jerome Robbins, Jirí Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Crystal Pite and the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, the guest company not to be missed.

One of the hallmarks of this new season in Paris are the guest conductors. Keri-Lynn Wilson conducts Cendrillon, another Massenet opera, while Susanna Mälkki takes on Janácek's The Makropoulos Case, and Eun Sun Kim on Offenbach's The Tales of Hoffmann.

Lydia Steier's shock production of Strauss' Salome returns with a new cast and the great voice of Lise Davidsen in the title role. Other prestigious conductors are in the pit, such as Thomas Hengelbrock for Verdi's Simon Boccanegra. By conducting two operas and concerts, notably at the Philharmonie de Paris, Gustavo Dudamel is now at home at the Opéra national de Paris. His repertoire has expanded to include contemporary works by Thomas Adès. Dudamel will premiere in Paris The Exterminating Angel in Calixto Bieito's production and conducts a great operatic masterpiece, Wagner's Lohengrin.

Alexander Neef marks this 2023-2024 season at the Opéra Bastille by his originality. Long-forgotten great titles return, such as Massenet's Don Quichotte (with the great names of Ildar Abdrazakov and Ildebrando D'Arcangelo alternating with Marianne Crebassa), Bellini's unexpected Beatrice di Tenda (with Pene Pati) or Spontini's superb Vestale. Elza van den Heever, acclaimed in Salome last season, has tenor Michael Spyres as her partner. The great voices are well represented, such as Peter Mattei, the greatest Don Giovanni of his generation, Piotr Beczala, a splendid Lohengrin opposite the Ortrud of the incomparable Wagnerian Nina Stemme. Jeanine De Bique is Massenet's charming Cinderella and Karita Mattila, who has graced the stage of the Opéra National de Paris, returns as Emilia Marty in Janácek's The Makropulos Case.

One of the biggest events of the season is undoubtedly Puccini's Turandot in Robert Wilson's aesthetic staging (tickets to be reserved as soon as possible). After a reference recording, the audience of the Opéra Bastille has the chance to see one of the greatest sopranos of today, Sondra Radvanovsky, facing the very moving Ermonela Jaho. The only thing missing is Jonas Kaufmann. Anna Netrebko, the superstar soprano, is Adriana Lecouvreur, alternating with Anna Pirozzi. They have Giorgio Berrugi, Yusif Eyvazov, Ekaterina Semenchuk and Clémentine Margaine as partners.

Many French artists are on the bill, including Ludovic Tézier. One of the greatest baritones of his generation is a regular at the Bastille, but this time plays Verdi's Simon Boccanegra, a highlight of the season, and also Giorgio Germont in La Traviata, alongside the sublime Nadine Sierra and Pretty Yende (alternating).

Opera tickets will be sold out very quickly to see Benjamin Bernheim in Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann (with the wonderful Rachel Willis-Sørensen and Pretty Yende), not forgetting the magnificent Gaëlle Arquez (Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni) or Cyrille Dubois, an exemplary tenor who is on the bill twice this season (Don Giovanni and The Makropoulos Case). Now is the time to book your seats at the Opéra national de Paris, this 2023-2024 season promises to be truly beautiful.
