Paris Nov.20-Dec 3 anything special to do?

This will be my second 2week stay in Paris. I've looked at a few other websites like what's on when and the such. Just thought I'd ask here if there was anything different in the winter (I was there in June) to make sure I check out. I hope to go to some concerts at St.Chappelle and the like. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks!

If you are into classical music, opera, ballet,etc.. this time of the year would be full season. Opera Garnier, Opera de Paris...I beleive, searching here would confirm, that the xmas lights might be up on the Grands Boulevards / stores by then.

Thank you Michel, I hadn't seen that website before. I tried for tickets at Garnier but could only attend opening night and it was sold out of course. Will keep researching.

Try www dot francebillet dot com

Click on advanced search. Enter the dates of your stay in Paris. Many, many events will come up. You can buy tickets online, or just jot down events which you might decide to attend on an impromtu basis while in Paris.

I will be there during the same time period and have purchased tickets to a Chopin recital and a jazz concert. Am also interested in a couple of art exhibits, but didn't buy tickets in advance, though I may for L'Orangerie.

Mostly, I just want to enjoy being back in Paris one day at a time, whatever comes along. Hope you have a wonderful trip!

So I booked some shows and am curious about the venues as I'm not familiar with any of them.

So Michel it sounds like you live in Paris. What's your opinion about these?:
Aida @ Omnisport Bercy
Cabaret @ Folies bergere
Carmen @ THEATRE DU TAMBOUR ROYAL

I'm going with my 60+ mom who is game for anything and I thought these might be nice in addition to church concerts and museums.
Thanks!
