Amphitheatre

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if someone might be able to help me out. There is a show listed on the POB website for Oct. 31 in the amphitheatre. However, after searching I am unclear about where this venue is. If you know any details I would greatly appreciate it. This show is listed as free, so I'm not sure if it will be difficult to get inside or if there is usually space available.

Thanks again for any info!

This is a small amphitheatre which is under the Opera Bastille. Same entrance as the main Opera House. This show is in fact a rehearsal. If you come 30 minutes in advance to queue you will have no problem to get in 'cause they are giving away tickets but as it's a free event, people don't systematically turn out so they let people with no ticket in 5 minutes before it starts to fill the place. This kind of event usually lasts about 1 hour.

Thanks so much for your help. I am very excited to go! I have one other question I hope you might be able to help me with. I am also trying to get tickets for the school demonstrations in December, but after I went through the process of getting an online booking account I was unable to find a place to get tickets. Does this mean they are sold out or do I contact someone special. I tried to find an e-mail to write them, but only found a phone number. My French is not good, so I didn't want to call.

Thanks again.

Well there is no ticket left on the internet and the phone booking is not opened yet. You should try to phone on the 26th of October, when the booking is opening, and ask for an english speaking operator, it's no problem.

Alternatively, from the 2nd of November, you can go to the box office... by phone and on the internet, only the first 4 categories are sold but at the box office you can find lower price tickets (most of them with restricted view but some with not so restriceted view if you stand up for example...)

the opera office has three dates of release for tickets to dispatch them the best....
