The Royal Opera

  • L'Opéra Royal


Inaugurated in 1770 on the occasion of the wedding of the future Louis XVI to the young Marie-Antoinette, the Royal Opera quickly became one of the most beautiful rooms in Europe.
The baroque era was the quintessential age of total art, with performances playing a major role: dance, music, theatre, costumes and sets, all mixed together in the most dazzling of harmonies. Despite this enthusiasm for performance arts, the Court did not have a theatre in the château until the end of the reign of Louis XV: it was he who built and decorated the magnificent Royal Opera, designed to be a room of transformations, intended for use both for the Court's performances and its balls.
