Aida at Opéra Bastille or Approximate Sonata at Palais Garnier?

Jump to last reply

The 2 options for ballet and opera when I'm visiting Paris are

1. Aida at Opéra Bastille
Or
2. Approximate Sonata (William Forsythe) ballet at Palais Garnier.

I'd much rather see Aida, and I've never been to an opera before. However, in terms of venues, I'd much rather go to the Palais Garnier. I've never seen it.

Which would you see and why?

FYI, I will have 2 kids along (9 and 11). I know these aren't the best events for kids but that's what the choices are. They see the Nutcracker ballet every Christmas, so that gives you an idea of what they are accustomed to. FYI, Aida has English subtitles the night I am considering going, so the kids would be able to follow along. But I know they would prefer the venue of the Palais Garnier.
