Discovering open-air opera
THE PARISIAN SUMMER
Summer is coming and the search for outdoor activities is driving my days. Indeed, relaxing under the Parisian sun always gives me immense pleasure. To enjoy Paris in summer, some places are essential, such as the Tuileries garden, the Buttes Chaumont or the Plants garden. Green spaces that will make you discover the Parisian summer life that I love so much. However, this year, I have a desire for change and finding atypical outings like Paris is one of my objectives. It is with this in mind that I learned about open-air cinema, the little-known districts of the capital and music festivals. In all my research, one event directly aroused my curiosity thanks to its originality, the open-air opera.
For me opera is a classical art, synonymous with a past in which I am not particularly interested despite the fact that my parents listen to it regularly and this music rocked my childhood. However, the open-air opera approach intrigues me enormously and attending one of the concerts during the summer will be a real pleasure. Indeed, through this approach the organizers wish to modernize the aging image of this art in order to open it to a wider audience not used to going to the opera such as myself, a challenge that seems to win because these outdoor performances are more and more recognized year after year. In addition, operas are always held in mythical places in Paris, such as the Hotel National des Invalides, an opportunity to discover Parisian monuments in a new way.
I am therefore convinced that open-air opera is the atypical activity not to be missed this summer, an opportunity to spend a unique moment that you will not forget.
