L’accessibilité est un enjeu essentiel pour l’Opéra Comique. Au-delà des normes indispensables et nécessaires à tout établissement public, nous avons à cœur de proposer la magie de l’opéra de manière égale pour tous les publics. Nous réfléchissons...

The Opéra Comique offers convenient seating and accessibility routes.

Tactile approach tours
To best understand the Opéra Comique, its hall and history, we encourage you to participate in a tactile tour with our specialized lecturer. This season, we renew with an ancient custom of involving in these tours the professionals from the world of performance arts that take part behind the scenes in the decor of the current production.
Rate: 5€ for the blind or visually-impaired person, free for the person accompanying them.
Preferential rates RELAX for people with disabilities and their companions: €10 for people under 18 years old and €20 for adults.
RELAX performances offer a caring and laid-back environment for people whose disability (autism, multiple disabilities, mental or psychic disability, Alzheimer…) may give rise to atypical and unpredictable behaviour during the show. The opera-house’ standard procedures are more flexible and everyone can experience emotions freely without fearing stares from others.
