When was the last time you took advantage of WICE’s numerous member benefits? As the spring semester draws to a close, we’d like to point out a few not-to-be-missed deals available exclusively to WICE Members.
Fans of classical music, rejoice! At the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, the end of the season does not mean a shortage in œuvres. Instead, the theatre is busy most days a week hosting recitals, ballets, concerts, and operas. What better place to take in the Philadelphia Orchestra’s version of Brahms, Beethoven, and Strauss than in a French National Monument? The building itself is one of few in France to be constructed in the style Art Deco. Its plain, reinforced concrete appearance shocked the French public, who was unused to such architecture during the time construction was completed in 1913.
Countless classical music acts have set foot inside the vast auditorium. Karl Boehm, Pierre Boulez, Claude Debussy, William Christie, Charles Münch, to name a few chefs d’orchestre. The world’s largest orchestras have graced the halls – France, Vienna, Berlin, Cleveland, Boston, and Saint Petersburg. As for the chanteurs, Luciano Pavarotti, Cecilia Bartoli, Natalie Dessay, Roberto Alagna, and José van Dam do not even begin to scratch the surface.

So what’s left of this season? How can one get their dreamy night-at-the-opera inside this Monument Historique?
