Opéra Comique

Posted on Updated on

Théâtre national de l’Opéra-Comique
1 Place Boieldieu, 75002 Paris, France
We’d love to attend an event at the Paris Opera House or the Opera Garnier, but “you can’t get there from here”
Tickets are unavailable, prohibatively expensive, unreachable and there is no one to talk to on the phone

Where the Opéra Comique is credible, historic. You can sit in the first five rows,

see them spit, see them cry,
have them look you directly in the eye

(that is where I like my seats)

Gioachino Rossini,

Die Fleidermaus
There are two larger opera houses in Paris, we tried to find seats there, the price was crazy and the seats were bad. This is a beautiful and historic venue. We sat among Parisians, it didn’t feel touristy (which is the Gold Standard for us) if anything, it was too French. We’d gladly return each year for the Sunday matinee, but Opera Comique is closed for renovation this year.
