Opera National de Paris

Opera National de Paris

The Paris Opera is the primary opera company of France. It was founded in 1669 by Louis XIV as the Academie d'Opera, and shortly thereafter was placed under the leadership of Jean-Baptiste Lully and officially renamed the Academie Royale de Musique, but continued to be known more simply as the Opera. It now hosts The Academy which aims to promote a new generation of artists: musicians, singers, vocal coaches, choreographers, and directors, and to enable pupils, students and families to discover the depth and breadth of the Paris Opera's productions.
