Place Boieldieu | Tickets in front of the theatre, 75002 Paris, France
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!
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

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
