  3. Opéra Comique


Despite a recent tendency towards experimental music, the Opéra Comique, also called Popular Musical Theater, still hosts quite a few of the comic (and other) operas that are its namesake. This comfortable gilded-age theater, the smallest of the major Parisian opera venues, also presents symphonic concerts regularly. The venue is done up in a nice Italian style decor typical of the end of the 19th Century with nice moldings and a lovely fresco on the ceiling.
