You don't need to understand French to understand the show, and these days most of the performances at the Opera Garnier are dance.
Everything from the contemporary Jerome Robbins to the classic Nureyev, the sublime Pina Bausch to the spectacular Balanchine
There is still some opera, this year they've announced what promises to be a stunning presentation of Carmen and surprising Hansel and Gretel by Engerbert Humperdink (who knew he wrote opera?).
There are also a few classical music performances each season.
Whatever is happening on stage, the room is gorgeous and you're sure to be enthralled with the master piece on the ceiling painted by Marc Chagall.
