Paris France - Opera House View - Opéra de Paris - Historic Architecture

The Paris Opera (French: Opéra de Paris)(French About this sound (help·info)) is the primary opera company of France. It was founded in 1669 by Louis XIV as the Académie d'Opéra, and shortly thereafter was placed under the leadership of Jean-Baptiste Lully and officially renamed the Académie Royale de Musique, but continued to be known more simply as the Opéra. Classical ballet as we know it today arose within the Paris Opera as the Paris Opera Ballet and has remained an integral and important part of the company. 321 573
