This year marks the 150th anniversary of the death of Hector Berlioz, to whom the Philharmonie de Paris will pay tribute throughout the season, including with two dedicated weekends—the opportunity to hear his greatest scores as well as lesser-known works.
In 2018, the year of Japanism, the Philharmonie welcomes great forms of traditional Japanese theatre and musical performance:
Bunraku • Noh • Kyōgen • Gagaku • Buyō • Taiko…
Celebrating the connection between music and film, the Philharmonie features beloved musicals and cult classics (young and old) from the silver screen.
Mary Poppins • Michel Legrand • Singin’ in the Rain • Star Wars • Nosferatu…
Throughout the season: a dialogue between the composers who shaped the twentieth century and their successors.

Staatskapelle Berlin/Barenboim • Boston Symphony Orchestra/Nelsons • Orchestre du Mariinsky/Gergiev • London Symphony Orchestra/Rattle/Roth/Haitink • Gewandhausorchester Leipzig/Nelsons • Filarmonica della Scala/Chailly • Berliner Philharmoniker/Nézet-Séguin...
Daniel Barenboim conducts the Staatskapelle Berlin and the Boulez Ensemble during the Pierre Boulez Biennial. He is also beginning a cycle of Beethoven’s complete piano sonatas which will span two seasons.
Four episodes of the mythic saga on the big screen with live musical accompaniment.
A New Hope • The Empire Strikes Back • Return of the Jedi • The Force Awakens
Babx • Camille • Claire Diterzi • Moriarty • Albin de la Simone…
Debussy – Ravel
The most prestigious French orchestras come together to celebrate the richness of French music. A weekend of concerts punctuated by a wide array of other activities.

AUGUST 30 TO SEPTEMBER 9, 2018
The big event to kickoff the new season, Jazz à la Villette covers the entire jazz palette, crossing genre lines to offer a living panorama of this ever-evolving brand of music.
The program will be announced on May, 2018.
3-8 SEPTEMBER 2018
This first edition of the Pierre Boulez Biennial, a joint initiative by the Philharmonie and Daniel Barenboim carried out simultaneously in Paris and Berlin, offers a dialogue between his heritage as a musician and the themes of history and creation.
Conceived as mini-festivals, these weekends are built around a theme, a genre, a musician, an instrument or a geographical zone. Concerts, conferences, shows or workshops to share as a family and there is even a musical childcare centre, allowing you to compose your very own program in perfect liberty.
This exhibition explores the joyous world of musicals. It seeks to immerse visitors in the films themselves, thanks to giant projections, along with photographs, rare documents and fun interactive exhibits to place the genre within its historical context.
From local dances to brass bands and cabarets, Robert Doisneau crossed paths with the jazz musicians and stars of his era. His photographs of these instances, many of which have never been shown to the public, are gathered for the first time within this exhibition.
Since its advent more than thirty years ago in the underground nightclubs of Chicago and Detroit, electronic music has spread around the world. Set to music by Laurent Garnier, this exhibition examines the different facets of the electro phenomenon.
You wish to awaken the interest of your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces in music… to give them the opportunity to discover concerts, activities and exhibitions which are rich, varied and suitable for their age-group? You’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the whole family.
FROM TUESDAY TO SUNDAY
The museum’s permanent collection presents 1000 exhibits (instruments, paintings, sculptures...) in a context illustrating their social and aesthetic context. With a wide variety of activities, it also actively contributes to the everyday goings-on at the Philharmonie.
