Paris Opera Garnier Overview:
Seating 2,200 people, the imposing Opera Garnier in Paris -- also known as the Palais Garnier or simply the Paris Opera-- is an architectural treasure and essential locus for the city's classical opera and ballet scene. Designed by Charles Garnier and inaugurated in 1875 as the Academie Nationale de Musique -Theatre de l'Opera (National Academy of Music - Opera Theater), the neo-baroque style Opera Garnier remains an important spot for the operatic arts, although the city's official opera company relocated to the starkly contemporary Opera Bastille in 1989.
Paris Opera Garnier Location and Contact Info:

The Opera Garnier is located in Paris's relatively central 9th arrondissement, more or less directly north of the Tuileries Gardens and the adjoining Louvre Museum. It's also one of the crowning attractions of the Opera-Haussmann neighborhood, one of Paris's most coveted shopping districts and the hub of major department stores like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps.
