Story

Located on the Ile de la Cité, just minutes from Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle is one of France's most visited monuments. But few of the million visitors who pass through the chapel's ornately carved doors each year have the privilege of attending an exclusive classical concert on the other side.

Euromusic Productions has assembled the finest sets and soloists in Paris to bring you a series of concerts and recitals that pay homage to classical music greats. Masterpieces by JS Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi, and Handel all make the list, a score of others stretching from the baroque period through the 20th century.

 

Add-Ons & Special Experiences

Looking for more than a standard ticket to the show? To make your experience an unforgettable one, you will be able to choose one of the following upgrated offers at the time of booking:

 

Champagne + Show

This offer includes a complementary glass of champagne at the restaurant 'L'Annexe', located just in front of the Sainte-Chapelle access door. You will be able to benefit from your glass of champagne before or after the concert.

 

Dinner + Show

This offer includes a 3-course dinner at the typical Parisian bistro ‘Les Fous de l’Ile'. You will be offered several dinner schedules when booking your tickets.

At the restaurant, you will have a choice of 5 starters, 5 main courses and 5 desserts, including vegetarian options. Drinks are not included.

Reviews

Magical historical evening

I thought the ambiance, location and concert were incredible. We were very sensitive to the location and the history of the Sainte-Chapelle but seeing a concert in it made it all more special. I wish we had been given a program instead of having to purchase it.

Wonderful evening

Excellent concert! Everything was beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of it! The only thing was that the weather was very hot and the Sainte-Chapelle doesn’t have ventilation.

Concert in a jewel venue

Beautiful music in a beautiful setting! The musicians were very talented and the acoustics in the chapel were outstanding. The concert lasted for 1 hour. Definitely worth the price of admission.

The Sainte-Chapelle (Holy Chapel)

8 Boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris

Paris’ Sainte Chapelle (Holy Chapel) is one of the finest remaining examples of Gothic French architecture. Built in the first half of the thirteenth century, it belongs to the ‘Rayonnant’ period, an architectural style characterised by an increased emphasis on ornate decoration rather than grand size. The chapel formed part of the medieval Palais de la Cité, where the French monarchy resided until the 14th Century. It was originally built to house Louis IX’s priceless collection of relics, including the Crown of Thorns of Christ, one of Christianity’s most cherished artefacts. Although damaged during the French Revolution, the chapel was restored to its shimmering prime thanks to a major renovation during the 19th century.

 

Much of the chapel as it appears today is the fruit of reconceptions by its various skilled restorers. But two thirds of the chapel’s most distinctive element, its magnificent stained glass panelling, are completely authentic. With 15 windows that stretch to 15 metres high, the Sainte Chapelle contains one of the most extensive collections of stained glass anywhere in the world. Its panels depict a total of 1,113 scenes from both Old and New Testament. This array of scenes and colours was no doubt intended as the defining feature of the chapel’s infinitely elaborate interior, but its remaining non-stained glass walls are also richly coloured and decorated. Equally impressive is the chapel’s high vaulted ceiling, painted deep blue and gold so as to resemble the night sky. Each year the Sainte Chapelle plays host to a diverse programme of classical concerts and recitals: as a unique Parisian show venue, things don’t get more atmospheric than this!

FAQ

How do I get to the Sainte-Chapelle?

The chapel is accessible by metro station Cité (Line 4) or RER station Saint-Michel Notre Dame. Our hotline can be reached in case of difficulty on the stage on weekdays from 10 am to 7pm Paris time. For details, we invite you to consult the map above.

What do I do when I get to the chapel?

We invite you to arrive between 30 and 45 minutes before the showtime marked on your ticket. Since the Sainte Chapelle is located within the premises of Paris’ Palace of Justice, concert attendees will need to pass through security checks before accessing the chapel. It is forbidden to bring sharp metal objects (knives, scissors, pliers etc), motorcycle helmets, or glass bottles into the chapel. Security guards cannot guarantee that any confiscated items will be returned to their owners.

Please note that the chapel doors will be closed five minutes before the start of the concert and late arrivals cannot be guaranteed entry. 

Where will I be seated?

There are three categories available, each of which provides a comfortable view of the performers. Our Category 1 seats are waiting in the first ten rows of the audience.

How long do the concerts last?

Each concert lasts approximately one hour, without an intermission.

Are these concerts for travellers or French people?

Both! Each year the Holy Chapel welcomes a million visitors who come from across the globe. With a program of composers originating from various countries around the world, these concerts can be enjoyed by speakers of any language.

Is there a dress code?

No, there is no dress code for the Sainte Chapelle concert series. However, guests are recommended to dress between formal and casual. We suggest avoiding the use of shorts, crocs, and caps.
