For a month, the Opéra Bastille is staging The Barber of Seville. Rossini's famous opera buffa is given a modern mise en scène by the Venetian Damiano Michieletto. Inspired by Pedro Almodovar's films, the Andalusian capital is portrayed here in a setting of picturesque alleys and colourful buildings. The costumes are both contemporary and flamboyant, highlighting the distinctive characters. A vivid show that brings to life this mythical opera.

Opéra national de Paris - Opéra Bastille

The Opéra Bastille was designed by Carlos Ott, a Canadian-Uruguayan architect, in November 1983 after an international competition in which 1,700 architects participated. It was later opened on 13 July 1989.
The architecture is characterized by the transparency of its facade and the use of the same materials on both the interior and the exterior of the building.
With its 2,700-seat auditorium with homogeneous acoustics, unique stage equipment, integrated workshops, costumes and accessories, and work and rehearsal rooms, the Opéra Bastille is a great contemporary theatre.
At the Opéra Bastille, visits led by a certified tourguide will immerse you behind the scenes of this impressively-sized modern theatre.
