Paris - Opera Garnier - Ticket for the ballet (La Bayadere)

Do you know where I can find tickets for the ballet at the Opera Garnier in Paris? The ones I am looking for (ballet: La Bayadere for May 29-June 2 functions) are sold out at the Opera.

People have asked this several times. Generally, there isn't much luck but someone did come up with one website that was a real company that appeared to have tickets when the Garnier was sold out. There was a markup, of course, but it wasn't too bad, as I recall (about 15 euro per ticket). That was www.classictic.com

It is really very late to be getting tickets for May, though, the person who was trying before also wanted La Bayadere, but that was a couple months ago.

I checked them and they don't even seem to have any.

You probably can get tickets via 3rd party ticket agencies, and pay a hefty mark-up.

Thanks to all for your replies. Classictic.com is a great source and I didn't find the markup to high. Cheers.

I was the person that bought the tickets for opening night of La Bayadere from Classictic.com. I paid about 10-15 % more than box office price for the 3 tickets that I purchased.
For me, it was money well spent. I go Monday night and I know it will be a highlight of an already memorable trip.
