Paris Music Tour

The passion of opera in Paris for independent travelers

Magical Paris offers something for everyone - world class museums, historic chateaux, charming bistros, grand boulevards and a vast array of entertainment options to suit every taste.

Although opera life in Paris is less notable than that of other significant centers, a visit to the famous Garnier Opera, the grandiose Second Empire landmark building, is a memorable highlight for music lovers. This huge opera house, the largest of its type, features an elaborate Grand Foyer that was built to host the most elegant functions. It is a building renowned for the legendary "Belle Époque" masquerades, as well as the subterranean lake that inspired the famous Leroux book, three films, as well as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s highly successful and passionate musical, the Phantom of the Opera.

International featured guest performers have vastly improved the artistic qualities of the performances in recent years. We also recommend that you experience a performance at Opera de la Bastille, the newly constructed facility that boasts superior acoustics. Our package offers flexibility whether you are a first time visitor or a seasoned traveler.
