GOING OUT IN SEPTEMBER

Exhibitions

With Picasso, Obstinément Méditerranéen, the Musée Picasso invites you to a journey in Picasso’s Mediterranean, from the landscapes of the Spanish ports to the works of his later years in the Côte d’Azur and the sun-drenched Midi. Until October 6th.

With Trees, the Fondation Cartier pays tribute to the artists and indigenous communities who have developed an intimate link with trees and revealed the beauty of these great protagonists of the living world, threatened today with large-scale deforestation. A testimony of those capable of looking at the vegetal world with wonder. Until November 10th.

The exhibition Prehistory, a modern enigma at the Centre Pompidou showcases the link which unites prehistory to modern and contemporary art, from the Mammouth de la Madeleine to Dove Allouche and Louise Bourgeois. Until September 16th.

Opera

In I Puritani by Vincenzo Bellini, you will be immersed in the story of an impossible love between a royalist and the daughter of a republican. Laurent Pelly’s production is as precise and incisive as Bellini’s last opera. Opéra Bastille from September 7th to October 5th.

The Palais Garnier welcomes La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi from September 9th to October 16th. This version, staged by Simon Stone, who makes his long awaited debut at the Paris Opera, implacably strips bare the violence of a society that promotes worldly pleasures only.

Ballet

Invited by the Opera de Paris, Hiroshi Sugimoto, a leading figure of contemporary photography, is joining forces with the choreographer Alessio Silvestrin, who worked with William Forsythe, for a new production at the Palais Garnier. This choreography, with a selection of songs by the composer James Blake, stands out for its speed and energy. From September 19th to October 15th.

Restaurants
