A technical malfunction affecting the fire door at Opéra Bastille that forced the cancellation of performances at the venue April 26–30 has caused an additional five performances to be put off through May 10. Opéra Bastille will reopen May 13 with Paris Opera's matinee of Parsifal.
Canceled are the May 5 and 10 performances of the Wagner opera and the May 2, 3, and 4 performances of the ballet Roméo et Juliette.
Previously, the technical glitch had caused the cancellation of the April 27 premiere of the new production of Parsifal, directed by Richard Jones, as well as a subsequent performance on April 30 as well as April 26 and 28 performances of Roméo et Juliette (by German choreographer Sasha Waltz).
Ticketholders for the canceled performances are being offered exchanges or refunds.
The performances scheduled at Paris Opera's Palais Garnier will take place as planned.
