Note: The theater will be closed for renovations until 2019, this season’s productions will take place at other venues. Specializing in all that is big and splashy, this lovely 19th-century theater hosts visiting international orchestras, divas, and ballet companies, as well as revivals of musical-theater classics (usually in their original language). At press time, the only show on the program during the renovations was a revival of the hugely successful “Singing in the Rain,” to be performed at the Grand Palais from Nov 2017 through Jan 2018. Reserve early, as big-name events sell out way in advance.
