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...

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.
The Relaxed performances offer a supportive and relaxed atmosphere in which everyone can express their emotions comfortably and enjoy the show. These performances are particularly suited for people with autism, a psychic or mental disability, and Alzheimer’s. The Opéra Comique staff and the volunteers from Ciné-ma-différence*, distinguishable by their yellow jackets, are there to make sure that everyone in the audience, disabled or not, feels welcome.
