The « Doré » way of life in Paris

It is said he brought the « power of the imagination to Europe ». Mainly thanks to his illustrations… Gustave Doré has illuminated a big part of the 19th century with black, verve and humour! Discover the « Doré » way of life thanks to the beautiful exhibition the Musée d'Orsay dedicated to him until June 5.

It is true that the Musée d'Orsay is a cult place for all those who love 19th century art in Paris. The former train station revisited as a museum was the ideal place to present this big exhibition about Gustave Doré (1832-1883), mainly celebrated for his incredible etchings of the works of Dante, Rabelais, Hugo or Balzac.

Original or imaginary. This time, in stead of just stopping at the illustrations that may have made the French artist famous, the exhibition meticulously reveals all the other sides of his work and his talents. From drawing to painting, from watercolour to sculpture. Often original or imaginary, the inspiration of Doré is expressed in all ranges of emotion![backPid]=254&cHash=c57f7254f4

He will soon be 70 years old and yet he's still a gentleman of rock 'n' roll. How does he do it? The answer is found through pictures, sounds and memorabilia galore at the Philarmonie, a new trendy and musical hot spot in Paris. And it is David Bowie, the glamorous rock 'n' roll dandy, who is using it for the first time. We recommend the "Bowie is" experience from the Opéra-Cadet.

And to begin the Bowie experience, you must go from "station to station" in Paris before reaching La Villette and opening the doors to the Philarmonie, leading to the exhibit. Here, you have the choice of "Rebel Rebel" or "Suffragette City"! Pirate, glamorous outsider, mod, rock 'n' roll or gentleman dandy...Every side of Bowie is fashionable!

The Bowie myth. And here, follow him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame flying the banner of elegance over his million different transformations! Videos, music, testimonies, memorabilia, objects...And the little English man in suit and tie becomes the gentleman of rock 'n' roll. A legend is born!

He played with shadows and light, creating realistic and trompe-l’œil effects. Fond of Baroque, yet ascetic art, Velázquez was a genial dandy amongst the Catholic kings. Three centuries later, Paris celebrates his astonishing talent at the Grand Palais from 25 March to 13 July. The Opéra-Cadet staff highly recommends this major Parisian event.
His century is known as the Golden Age because of Spain’s influence on the rest of the world through the gold found in the Americas. But we could have called it the “Time of Velázquez” as the dandy painter - 1599/1660 – left his mark on this era and since then became a true artistic legend.
The Golden Age in Paris. He is known for his famous portraits of important Spanish leaders and the Infantes as well as for his very distinctive painting techniques. The Parisian exhibition takes the time to examine his works, like those of other artists of his time, in order to help visitors discover their marvellous golden glow! Absolutely fascinating!

The New Year looks very promising! Not only will you stay in the cosy setting of the Opera Cadet Hotel, but also enjoy the scandalous surprise that the city has in store close by… Discover the Kama-Sutra, featured in the context of civilization until 11 January at the Pinacothèque of Paris.

A great success! There will be some sauciness of course, as the exhibit presents the Kama-Sutra, famous erotic Indian literature that has long provoked the Western mind. Do not let yourself be deceived. Open your eyes and let this exhibit debunk a few misconceptions. 

This book is more than erotic, but mystical! To support this thesis: over 500 works, including sculptures, painting, miniatures, are presented in addition to the famous "pillow book"! This evidence beautifully shows that the work was written through the desires of an elite to guide the people to virtue, well-being and love.

The end of the year is really magical in Paris. If you have already stayed at the Opéra-Cadet at that time of the year, you know it very well. Illuminations, Christmas markets, animations… ; all becomes tender, welcoming and sparkling of surprises. An excellent occasion to discover the main must-see exhibitions of Paris.

You’ll obviously be charmed by the illuminations, particularly on the Champs-Elysées. And between two glasses of mulled wine and culinary discoveries, you’ll be strolling along the incredible stalls of the Christmas markets where the entire family can enjoy the Ferris Wheel of La Concorde or the ice rink of the Hôtel de Ville.

Champagne and culture! But maybe you’ll soon be charmed by the culture that Paris has to offer. Why not visit the famous Nanas of Niki de Saint Phalle at the Grand Palais?  Or maybe the Mickael Jacksons and vacuum cleaners signed by Jeff Koons at the Centre Pompidou? Christmas makes the best of champagne bubbles!
