  • Get your phantom on in the place that inspired the hit musical. Take a self-guided tour of the most beautiful opera house in the world
  • 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

Opéra Garnier is a Parisian icon. To those in the know, this opulent opera and ballet house is as much a part of the cultural fabric of this city 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. Perhaps the most beautiful opera house in the world, Opéra Garnier is packed with history. Take a self-guided tour of this remarkable home of the music (of the niiiight).

Opéra Garnier (also known as Palais Garnier) has swinging chandeliers, a grand marble staircase leading to its Grand Foyer, and a 2,000 seat auditorium. You'll be transported to the rich elegance of yesteryear as you take a self-guided tour 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.

However, you will visit many hidden nooks and crannies that make this one of the largest theaters in the world (by acreage). 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.

Like the sweeping drama of the musical it inspired, everything you do in here will feel epic.

Patrice Chéreau, directing the opera (18 November 2017 - 3 March 2018)

The Ópera Garnier's latest exhibition explores and celebrates the life and work of legendary film, theater and opera director Patrice Chéreau. Known as an 'actor's director' Chéreau brought an enhanced reality to the operas he worked on. Produced to mark the revival of From the House of the Dead, this exhibition studies Chéreau's inimitable creative processes and draws a portrait of a highly collaborative, imaginative and prolific theater-maker.

With no WiFi, picture of ticket was not accepted. They let me in anyhow. It was beautiful. The auditorium was in use and dark so photos did not come out and did not get the full experience. I’d like to see the auditorium lit up.

I️ find it easier Since this is my second time going to the opera. I️ asked my partner and he seemed to be a little lost since we didn’t have the recorder.
