  • Get your phantom on in the place that inspired the hit musical. Take a guided tour of the most beautiful opera house in the world, in English
  • Discover the hidden nooks and crannies, see the temporary exhibition and the sweeping Grand Staircase
  • See the auditorium's famous Chagall ceiling and the 7-ton chandelier that hangs from its center

To those in the know, Opéra Garnier is as much a part of the cultural fabric of Paris as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, or the Tour Eiffel. And to everyone around the world, it's known as the setting for The Phantom of the Opera. Take a guided English-speaking tour of this remarkable home of the music (of the niiiight).

See the impressive façade and its rose marble columns, check out the intricacies of the friezes, admire the auditorium's seven-ton chandelier and the Grand Foyer's mosaic-covered ceiling, and make sure to take in the temporary exhibitions.

You'll be transported to the rich elegance of yesteryear as you take a guided tour (in English) of this beautiful building.

Charles Garnier designed this opera house for Emperor Napoleon III, and construction began in 1862, but the project was held up by the discovery of an underground lake onsite. Tour groups aren't allowed down to the Phantom's lair, but considering how it turned out in Gaston Leroux's novel Phantom of the Opera, maybe that's for the best.

The tour guide was excellence. Great value for 90-mins and I got far more out of the visit than I would have done if I'd walked around on my own. Definitely recommend. I'd do it again, for sure.

A visita é super interessante, o guia explica muitos detalhes e curiosidades sobre a construção da Ópera, e o lugar em si é lindíssimo! Vale a pena fazer a visita guiada também porque através dela pudemos ter acesso ao interior da sala principal, podendo observar os detalhes da belíssima pintura de Chagal no teto. No dia em que fiz a visita, o nosso grupo teve sorte: as cortinas do palco estavam erguidas, e pudemos observar os funcionários da Ópera fazendo a manutenção do piso e das luzes. Vimos o quanto o palco é gigantesco, quão complexa é sua superestrutura e pudemos ver também a leve inclinação do mesmo, o que possibilita um visualização perfeita à plateia - o que é um "grande problema para os dançarinos", disse-nos o guia Emanuel. Nossa sorte foi ainda maior, pois, em meio aos trabalhos de manutenção do palco, uma bailarina, vestida à caráter, ensaiava sua dança, ao som de um clássico reproduzido em seu celular. Visita maravilhosa! Super recomendo!!!
