Starting at 168€/person

Plus 50€ service fee


Enjoy a unique, private guided tour of the Palais Garnier where you'll explore the public areas including the grand staircase and foyer and the Rotonde du Glacier. The auditorium, designed like a jewelery box, is sure to be the highlight of your visit. Decorated in gold and red velvet throughout and the vivid colors of the ceiling painted by Marc Chagall will immerse you into a dream-like atmostphere.

As you step backstage, you'll discover the heart of the machinery of a 19th century Parisian theater and the beautiful Foyer de la Danse, where dancers rehearse and warm up before going on stage, with its strikingly beautiful chandelier and its magnificent paintings.

Upon request, you can add the costume ateliers to the tour where more than 30 professionals work on restoring and creating the costumes of the Paris Opera Ballet. You will also discover the historical 19th century "Central costumes" room storing the creations of the latest productions and where you'll learn costume-making secrets from the company's production. You can also add a private 1 hour cocktail reception after the tour and book tickets to the evening's performance of your choice.

The backstage tours are guided by speakers carefully selected by the Paris Opera teams. Visits are available in French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, Japanese and Russian.
