Dare, desire, quiver. These three words written on the front of the Opéra Bastille make it clear that modernity is now a statement of the institution. Founded in 1713, the Opéra National de Paris’ dance school keeps evolving in terms of techniques and practice, renewing itself while keeping its tradition. These values are dear to Merlet, the shoemaker and shoe licensee of Opéra National de Paris, who makes the pretty shoes that will seduce dance-loving young ladies! Created and designed in a small workshop of France’s Limousin region which was established in 1974, Opéra National de Paris shoes make their debut on Sarenza to bring a graceful and timeless touch to women’s feet.
