The Opéra Bastille was build as a replacement for the Opéra Garnier. In 1982 the French president François Mitterrand decided that a second opera house had to be build. Architect Carlos Ott was selected in 1994 to design the building. The selected location was the former
Gare de la Bastille. In 1989 the Opéra Bastille was opened.
