Paris shows at the Palais des Congrès
Published on 20 May 2013, dans Entertainment
Paris shows are among the most popular reasons for booking short breaks in the French capital. There are many venues across the city that stage live entertainment, but few have the range of attractions you can enjoy at the Palais des Congrès de Paris. Book a room at the Hotel Royal Cardinal, which is located in the Latin Quarter within easy travelling distance of the venue, when you purchase your show tickets and you will have all the ingredients needed for a memorable getaway in Paris.
Paris shows with international appeal
The complex in the 17th arrondissement is a renowned convention centre and stages many important business exhibitions each year, but it is the spectacular musicals and plays in the Grand Amphithéâtre that are its main appeal. The events calendar of the Palais des Congrès de Paris is always packed, but its 2013-14 programme is particularly impressive.
One of the most family friendly shows on the schedule is The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses on May 25th 2013. This musical interpretation of the popular video game series features a performance by a full symphony orchestra and choir, along with some eye-catching visuals, and will appeal to both children and adults.
Other shows suitable for the whole family include an orchestral version of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers from June 26th to 29th 2013 and a musical based on the Robin Hood stories, which will run from September 26th to December 1st 2013.
There are also plenty of Paris shows suitable for couples enjoying a romantic break in the French capital. You could enjoy a gala performance celebrating the work of Rudolf Nureyev on May 31st 2013, a selection of Viennese Waltzes with music by the Budapest Strauss Symphony Orchestra on January 15th 2014, or Don Quixote starring Irina Kolesnikova on February 6th 2014. For the ultimate evening out on Valentine's Day, you can book tickets to the Moscow Theatre Ballet's version of Romeo and Juliet.
