BWW Previews: 5 SHOWS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2019
Many people spend weeks or months planning the perfect trip to Paris! We firmly believe that excellent theatre should be a part of your trip in 2019, so here is a quick guide to some exciting things coming up this year.
This classic is coming to Paris, entirely in French! See how Europeans love New York, as the director's message promises to infuse the production with "the beating heart of Manhattan". Premiering on March 13th this musical promises to wow from the Theatre Marigny, a 1,200 seat theatre in the 8ème arrondissement!
The triumph at Mogador continues to the end of June this year so you have plenty of opportunities to see this one- in French, yes, but with English surtitles. We know you already know all the words anyway!
See an old classic in a new language! Theatre de la Ville always provides an exciting mix of new and classic theatre in various locations around Paris. This powerful play still resonates with our modern world and looks to be a beautiful production.
Opera de Paris is one of the most reputable companies in the world for Opera and seeing Carmen at the beautiful Bastille location will be a once in a lifetime experience. Catch it from April 11th! And while you're in the city take a tour of the Opera Garnier as well- they are currently hosting a Phantom of the Opera themed escape game!
Also from Theatre Marigny, this intimate exploration of some of Sondheims' hits will be an illuminating evening. Originally an off-Broadway production created in 1980, it will be fascinating to see how Sondheim is interpreted by non-English speakers. Hurry, as this one only runs January 30th-February 24th.
And let's not forget that this year the Théâtre du Chatelet re-opens! It will be thrilling to see the new space and the amazing musical theatre they put in it!
What are you looking forward to seeing in Paris? We will have more exciting theatre when the 2019/2020 seasons are announced later this spring!
