The Journées des Métiers d'art is an opportunity to discover a wide range of fascinating professions, as well as to visit some magical places! This April 6, 2024, come to the Opéra Comique to discover the performing arts.

In the spring, in France and a number of other European countries, a very special event awaits us... It's the Journées Européennes des Métiers d'Art (J EMA): a week of discoveries, workshops, visits, conferences and demonstrations, to better understand and appreciate the crafts.

But what exactly are arts and crafts? According to the French Ministry of Culture, they are " handcrafted manual trades. They mobilize traditional skills of high technicality, often exceptional. " There are officially 281 of them. Fashion, architecture, performing arts, interior design, luxury goods, heritage... These special trades can be found in a wide range of sectors!

JEMA is therefore an opportunity to celebrate these French skills and craftsmen. For this 18th edition, several hundred establishments are opening their doors to us, from April 2 to 7, 2024. A total of 7,000 events are on offer to the public, on the theme of"Sur le bout des doigts" ("At your fingertips").

Thousands of events in France, more than 500 in the Île-de-France region... That's a lot! The options are numerous, but there are some events you just can't miss.

During this 18th edition of JEMA, it's impossible to miss the exceptional tours of theOpéra Comique, organized on Saturday, April 6, 2024. A temple of art and music, the Opéra Comique invites us to go backstage and discover the artistic teams who make every show a delight.

Costume designers, wig-makers, make-up artists and prop-makers give us a glimpse of their know-how, their tasks and their achievements, by opening the doors of their workshops to us. We discover the people and work behind the creation of a show. It's a rare visit for the uninitiated!
