What to expect
See the inside of the Opéra Garnier in Paris with these tickets that guarantee queue-free access at the box office. This is one of the most representative places of Parisian architecture, built by order of Emperor Napoleon III and inaugurated in 1875 to host opera, music and dance performances.
Its refined and exclusive style, characteristic of the buildings of the time, highlights an impressive interior with gilded details, gigantic chandeliers and mosaics throughout the building, created by the architect Charles Garnier.
You can discover some of the main areas and secrets of this jewel of the "City of Light". The imposing Grand Staircase is one of its most impressive visual spectacles: its steps and railings of Seravezza marble, green marble, red marble and onyx intertwine and stand out in a scene that will take your breath away.
You will have the opportunity to walk through its luxurious foyers, where Parisian high society of the 1800s strolled to show off, between opera intermissions, their dresses, suits and jewellery.
You will see the auditorium, where some 1,900 red velvet seats sit in front of the enormous curtain that precedes the spectacular works that have been presented there. It is not for nothing that the plot of Gaston Leroux's novel The Phantom of the Opera is set in this cultural centre.
In the same auditorium you can also see the colossal ceiling painted with frescoes by the artist Marc Chagall, in which he paid homage to the musical arts and to some iconic monuments of Paris, such as the Arc de Triomphe.
