Taking over the Opéra Garnier, a 19th-century acoustic and architectural masterpiece by visionary Charles Garnier, was a dream. In 2017, it came true and we got to become a part of this world-class haven of culture and artistic creation. From our partnership arose an immersive Devialet Area in the heart of the Opéra Garnier, plus an exclusive Phantom collection at the crossroads of our shared areas of expertise: human savoir-faire and technological innovation.
On January 10, 2020, the Phantom Reactor Opéra de Paris | Devialet and the Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris | Devialet made a resounding entrance. Discover this prestigious collection on our website and in stores.
The Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris | Devialet is the proud ambassador of the Opéra Garnier’s prestige and influence. Its brilliant look, inspired by the age-proof gold of the auditorium, bears Devialet's signature technology: 4500 Watts, 108 dB, 14HZ. A golden sound.
Our latest technological feat further strengthens the bonds of excellence that unite our two worlds. Despite its ultra-compact size, a Phantom does not go unnoticed in the sheer immensity of the Opéra Garnier. Its outstanding sound performance and design speak for themselves, boasting 900 Watts, 98 dB, gold leaf side plates. Phantom Reactor Opéra de Paris | Devialet: Monumental, wherever you are.
Les Ateliers Gohard, responsible for restoring the gold of the Palais Garnier, also adorns the Phantom Opéra de Paris | Devialet following the meticulous and artisanal technique of mixtion gilding. This technique consists of applying a special glue on the support. Once the mix is "amoureuse" — an expression alluding to a delicate, wet kiss — the gold leaf is applied. Each gold leaf is laid "à façon," or placed by hand for a singular finish.
The Devialet sound discovery area opened at the Palais Garnier in Fall 2017, ideally located in the west area of the Grand Vestibule. This space has been designed as a minimal setting with sophisticated details, and overseen by the chief architect of France's historic monuments and the regional directorate of cultural affairs.
Within this space, the Phantoms Opéra de Paris | Devialet shines as exceptional technological masterpieces. Guests will witness not one Phantom or Phantom duo, but an entire orchestra of 16 Phantoms delivering the purest, most profound emotion that sound can possibly deliver within the walls of a venerable temple to sound itself.
By day, visitors will access the area through the main entrance, and by night, before and during performances, through the Grand Vestibule. They will be able to discover and purchase Devialet products.
