We visited here on a quick photo tour of Paris landmarks having visited Moulin Rouge before here but was a bit disappointed as it looked like a large cinema but still took a couple of photos and it wasn't far from Hard Rock so worth going

The theatre itself has a grand entrance hall. The theatre itself is quite large and there are balconies. The stage is a good size. The seats are not that comfortable. Entering the first balcony I was shown to my seat, and was asked to pay a tip. Don't make the mistake of sitting in row L, it is not worth... More

Take in a tawdry and sexy show at the Folies Bergeré...a combination of song and dance coupled with a little humour, a little risque, but no nudity unlike the Moulin Rouge...still wouldn't bring children. Great adult entertainment and a great night out in the City of Nights.

We have been there to see the jersey boys show. The theatre scène is very nice but the entrance Hall is more fantastic So it's a good place to see spectacular shows

I was in Paris on Tuesday evening and had the opportunity to see the Jersey Boys, having seen the west end version and been so impressed and entertained by it, I couldn't resist the opportunity to see it again. What a disappointment! An Italian production with French subtitles ... What's that all about?! Very few songs ( in English )... More

I was worried about going to this show. We had already seen the NYC version. Had bought tickets on billetreduc before the summer. The week before ( with more or less no promotion anywhere...a bit strange) it leaks out that the show is actually in Italian, featuring a group from Italy, preparing for a residence in Milan (followed by a...

Saw the last night of Ohlala and it was amazing. But there is a new show and this is about the iconic Folie Bergere. It has such a history and is so Parisienne. The place is rather worn, but that's ok, it's still very atmospheric. All seats have a decent view, so it's not necessary to pay 'top dollar'. In... More

The show was called "OHLALA" well it wasn't what we expected, it was full of entertainment. It was like a Vaudeville show. The acts were great, with crowd participation. Doors open at 7pm for pre entertainment and the show starts at 8:30pm. I suggest you arrive at 8pm. The show goes for approximately 2:30 hrs. The night we went a... More

This music hall has been part of Paris's identity for over a hundred years. Helped launch career of Maurice Chevalier, Josephine Baker and others. Known for breaking the rules regarding nudity the theater still has productions that blend burlesque with singing, etc. Just saw Ooh La La which has Broadway potential. It has it all, comedy, magic, dance, contortionists, etc.... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
