On the occasion of the 350th anniversary of Opéra de Paris, Orsay Museum organize an exhibition entitled "Degas à l'Opéra" from September 24, 2019 to January 19, 2020. Throughout his career, from his debut in the 1860s to his final works after 1900, Degas made the Opera the focal point of his output. It was his “own room”. He explores the theatre’s various spaces (auditorium and stage, boxes, foyers, and dance studios) and follows those who frequent them: dancers, singers, orchestral musicians, audience members, and black-attired subscribers lurking in the wings. For more than 40 years, the artist has been portraying Opéra de Paris in the 19th century, through iconic works such as La loge, La Petite Danseuse de quatorze ans or le Foyer de la Dans. Museum is open every day except Mondays from 9:30am to 6pm and night visit until 9:45pm on Thursdays. This exhibition is organised by the Musée d’Orsay and the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
Address: 1, rue de la Légion d'Honneur 75007
