After Closing to the Public

Visit the Opéra Garnier after it has closed to the public. Each year, nearly one million people discover this temple of lyrical art, the only theater in the world that is both an artistic and creative space and a monument steeped in history, captivating with its inherent beauty. Explore the immense and majestic main staircase, the grand foyer of the Opera, inspired by the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, and the belt of light surrounding the building. Your guide will share numerous anecdotes about the construction of this building, designed by Charles Garnier during the reign of Napoleon III in the second half of the 19th century. The young architect was not only a lover of art but also of women. This is one of the reasons why he chose red as the predominant color, as it gives the most beautiful complexion to ladies when reflected.
