Stayed across the street at the LaMaison Favart hotel with our room window looking right into the opera plaza. Saw people walking in, so went across the street and entered. As it turns out they were having a meeting in the auditorium concerning next years...More

The Salle Favart is a bit hidden, facing a modest court rather than the main street, so it is advisable to look carefully at maps on Métro and bus stops while walking there. The building is ornate but not overwhelmingly so, and the interior layout...More

The Opera House has a restaurant with incredible food! Off to the right of the main entrance is a 4 star restaurant. Food is great with great service. A little expensive but well worth it. I had the best salmon ever!

Very impressive theater building and square in front of it. The lobby is lovely, although I have never seen the inside of the theater. Lots of restaurants around to catch the theater crowd.

Opened in 1898, is a beautiful opera house. You could compare with Palais Garnier the decorations, the murals, the busts, the magnificent staircases. The program what they have is very interesting, not the famous and well-know opera, but not too much known pieces. We have...More

We have just returned from a production at the Opera Comique. The singing was wonderful, the orchestra also. We chose the second best seats online, 95 euros, and still had only partial views of the stage. So our advice is to purchase seats only in...More

Frequently overlooked and neglected, especially by non-French speaking tourists, the Opéra-Comique of Paris deserves much more attention and recognition. Unlike the vast amounts of information given about the Opéra Garnier and Opéra Bastille, few guidebooks give more than a cursory passage to Opéra-Comique. Perhaps because...More
