New Production! It’s hard not to look forward to this production when Jonas KaufmannSonya Yoncheva and Elīna Garanča take on the headline roles. Ildar Abdrazakov (whose Boris Godounov will be presented in cinemas this July), Ludovic TézierEva-Maud Hubeaux and Dmitry Belosselskiy also star in what is likely to be the Opera de Paris’ highlight of the season and a historical performance. 

Politics, religion, history and psychoanalysis all intertwine in visionary director Krzysztof Warlikowski's new production of Verdi's monumental tale of romance, idealism and devotion in 16th-century Spain.

This production features the original French version of this great five-act opera: the version modified by Verdi himself for the work’s first performance in 1867. Philippe Jordan conducts. Don't miss it.

Opéra de Paris

Opéra de Paris is one of the world's greatest opera and ballet companies. Founded more than three centuries ago by Louis XIV, it now holds performances in two theatres, the Palais Garnier (1875) and the Opéra Bastille (1989). The company’s mission is to preserve and develop our operatic and ballet heritage and it gives more than 350 performances per year. Great composers such as Rameau, Gluck, Rossini, Verdi, Wagner, Gounod, Massenet, Poulenc and Messiaen all gave the first performances of their works here.
