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.

Relax Sessions

RELAX sessions offer a inclusive caring environment for people whose disability (autism, multiple disabilities, mental or psychic disability, Alzheimer…) may give rise to atypical and unpredictable behaviour during the show. Artists and audiences are aware, the opera-house’ standard procedures are more flexible and everyone can experience emotions freely without fearing stares from others.
A FALC guide on how to access the opera house as well 13 as FALC guides on each Sunday Relax Session performance are at your disposal.

In partnership with the association Culture Différence, which supports performance halls and venues in their desire to facilitate access to culture for people with complex disability.
