What I have found while booking Paris opera tickets online is that usually only the higher-priced categories are on offer, starting at 40 or 45 Euros.

So this time I didn't book online, but just went and took my chances at the box office. The Opéra Bastille was nearly sold out, with 85 Euros being the cheapest seat available, so I passed on that, but at the Garnier I got a place in the third level of box seats for only 25 Euros -- more than double the price I pay for an opera ticket in Frankfurt am Main, but hey, this is Paris.

At the Bastille box office you can buy tickets for the Garnier as well, and visa versa.

Fourth photo: My ticket for box 18, seat 5. On the ticket it clearly says "Visibilité réduite" = reduced visibility, and that was certainly true, but there was fortunately no one behind me so I could simply stand up whenever I wished.
