This experience offered by GREETS PARIS is unique: the Opéra Garnier, a 19th century architectural masterpiece, was ordered by Napoleon III and designed by architect Charles Garnier. You will find yourself in a dream world there, amongst Master paintings, golden adornments and marble.
Following your guide, you will be able to contemplate the auditorium and its silk adorned seats, its gigantic chandelier weighing over 8 tons with 400 lights hanging from Chagall’s painted ceiling, the famous box 5 booked by the Phantom of the Opera along with the stage and hall, both made sublime by painter Edgar Degas. You will then be granted access to the most secret places of the Opéra: the water tank room under the Auditorium, the capstans room harboring the machinery and the Foyer de la danse. A ballet dancer will finally join you to share their knowledge and experience with you.
