The great operatic composer comes to the Opéra Bastille. A historical backdrop and the internal passions of the Ethiopian princess and the Egyptian military commander express subjects dear to Verdi: nostalgia for a lost homeland, deliverance through death, another space and time ... Dutch director Lotte de Beer focuses on the European perspective of colonized peoples – ‘Aida’ was created in 1871 to celebrate the opening of the Suez Canal – the opening of a new door to the understanding of the work. From 9 February to 27 March 2021 at the Opéra Bastille.

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.
