On this exciting evening, get in the mood with a musical like Oliver Twist, the Musical at the Salle Gaveau, The Three Musketeers at the Palais des Sports, Notre Dame de Paris at the Palais des Congrès... 

After singing Christmas carols, give your voice a rest and enjoy with the acrobat, jugglers or contortionists of Circacuba at the Circus Phénix, or the pure magic of an evening at the opera with Swan Lake at the Opéra Bastille

Book your ticket for the Oliver Twist, the Musical

2015 is not far away! The ballet Flamenco by Sara Baras will give you a new taste for dance, at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. What’s more, the avenue of the same name (the most famous avenue in Paris) is a real red carpet and you are the star. Wherever you look, restaurants, night clubs and concept bars are all decorated for an unforgettable evening.

If you find yourself in Place de l’Etoile, you may as well stay there and bring in the New Year through the Arc de Triomphe!  For the first time, the city of Paris is organizing a festive event at the foot of the monument. And that is not all: the next day a big parade will enable you to keep fatigue at bay and spirits high – making the magic last a little longer.


  • A special video show will be projected on the Arc de Triomphe from 11:30pm on the evening of the 31st December
  • A festive parade for families to enjoy will take place on the Champs Elysées at 2pm on the 1st January
