Opera 350 years
Description350 years old and younger than ever! From the first Salle du Jeu de Paume under Louis XIV to the inauguration of the Opéra-Bastille in 1989, the Paris Opera has had a destiny that embraces the great hours of French History while writing the adventure of the arts.
In three and a half centuries, the Paris Opera moved a dozen times. Sagas were written about it, writers wrote its legend, artists sublimated it, and singers gave it its prestige and brilliance. Lully and Rameau magnified the bases of tragedy in music, we were infatuated with the white ballet, we applauded Swan Lake, we were surprised by grandiose stagings. Verdi's beloved department store drew Europe into its midst: Meyerbeer and Mozart triumphed where Wagner failed. There were scouts named Charles Garnier, Jacques Rouché, Marc Chagall, Rudolf Nureyev, Olivier Messiaen?
