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.

The opera house is a national treasure -- make sure that you take the guided tour to find out all of the details of this amazing structure.

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

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
