The opera Paris is a Haussmanian avenue situated in the center of Paris, France as its shown in opera Paris map. Opera Paris runs from the Louvre to the Palais Garnier, which was Paris main opera until it was replaced by the Opéra Bastille in 1989. Unlike most Parisian avenues, there are no trees. This is the result of a compromise between Haussmann and Charles Garnier, the architect of the Opera House, who desired the best view possible of the main facade of the Opera at the end of the avenue.
Opera Paris (9th arrondissement, right bank as its mentioned in opera Paris map) is the area around the Opera Garnier and the location of the capital densest concentration of both department stores and offices. A few examples are the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette grands magasins (department stores), and the Paris headquarters of financial giants such as BNP Paribas and American Express.
In 1864 it was decided to create an "avenue Napoleon" in 1870 as part of the major works of Baron Haussmann, at the fall of the Second Empire the work was stopped (see opera Paris map). The Avenue Napoleon was then renamed opera Paris in 1873 during the Third Republic. In June 1876, work resumed and the last buildings bordering this new avenue will be built in 1879. Being narrower than the facade of the Opera, the Avenue de l'Opéra was not planted with trees, unlike most major roads of the time.
