1. Opéra National de Paris Garnier

    Not just a night out, but a whole experience, opera has now returned to its original Paris base after the theatre had a spell as a dance-only venue. The vast stage can hold a cast of 450, and the building itself is an example of excessive opulence, complete with grand staircase, mirrors and marble .

  2. Folies-Bergère

    The epitome of Parisian cabaret, the Folies were, for a time, no more than a troupe of high-kicking, bare-breasted dancers. Today, the musical shows have largely returned to the nostalgic days when Maurice Chevalier and Josephine Baker performed here.

  3. The Lido

    Home to the world famous troupe of long-legged dancers, the Bluebell Girls, the fabulous special effects include aerial ballets and an on-stage skating rink. There are many who regard this dinner-cabaret as an essential Parisian experience.

  4. Moulin Rouge

    The original home of the Can-Can, the theatre’s dancers were immortalized on canvas by Toulouse-Lautrec during the belle époque and are on display in the Musée d’Orsay. The show still has all the razzamatazz that has been dazzling audiences since 1889. The pre-show dinner is optional .

  5. Le Crazy Horse Paris

    More risqué than the other big-name cabaret shows, the Saloon has a reputation for putting on the most professional as well as the sexiest productions. Striptease features, along with glamorous dancing girls and other cabaret acts. The computer-controlled lighting effects are spectacular.

  6. Le Cirque d’Hiver

    Worth visiting for the freshly renovated façade alone, this whimsical 150-year-old building plays host to the traditional Cirque Bouglione, complete with trapeze artists and tame tigers.

  7. Comédie Française

    Paris’s oldest theatre was founded in 1680 and is still the only one with its own repertory company, staging both classical and modern drama (in French). The current building dates from the 18th century. Around the corner from the main box office, a special window opens 45 minutes before curtain-up, selling reduced price tickets for under-27s and concessions.

  8. Opéra National de Paris Bastille

    Opened in 1992 as the largest opera house in the world, this modern building was heavily criticized, not least for its acoustics and poor facilities. However, this is still the best place to see opera in Paris.

  9. Théâtre du Châtelet

    The city’s largest concert hall and fourth-largest auditorium was built in 1862. The repertoire covers classical music, ballet and opera, as well as popular Sunday morning chamber music concerts.

  10. Théâtre de la Ville

    Once known as the Sarah Bernhardt Theatre, in honour of the great Parisian actress who performed here and managed the theatre in the 19th century, today it puts on an eclectic range of modern dance, music shows and some classical theatre.
