Mexica, offerings and divinities at the Templo Mayor

On 21 July 1978, the subsoils of bustling Mexico City revealed one of the most exceptional secrets of Mesoamerica: the remains of the ancient city of Tenochtitlan, capital of the Mexica civilisation, long wrongly named Aztec, and its sacred enclosure, the Templo Mayor.The chance discovery of an enormous circular monolith depicting the moon goddess Coyolxauhqui inaugurated half a century of archaeological excavations on an unprecedented scale. While the history of the Mexica Empire (1325-1521) is widely known and documented, its culture remained unknown in the fields of ritual, art and architecture.The exhibition finally lifts the veil on these discoveries. Among the most striking are 204 offerings that the Mexica people made to their most venerated deities, to pay homage to them and sometimes to seek certain favours in return.Archaeological study reveals not only a dynamic and predatory society, but also artistic excellence and complex symbolic and religious thought.Venue : Musée du Quai BranlyDuration : until 08 September 2024Address : 37 Quai Jacques Chirac 75007 ParisOpening days : Tuesday to Sunday.Timetable : from 10.30 am to 7 pmAdmission : €14Transport : RER C station Pont de l’AlmaBus number 42 to Tour Eiffel station

Molière, the Urban Opera

Molière l’Opéra Urbain is an innovative musical creation that brings together a variety of talents on stage, from singers to slammers, rappers, dancers, actors and musicians, all in a set and costumes reminiscent of the 17th century.This show recounts the life of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, better known as Molière. Despite pressure to follow in the footsteps of his father, an upholsterer to the King, Molière chose to pursue his passion for writing plays.His success began in the autumn of 1658 when he found the protection of Philippe d’Orléans, nicknamed ‘Monsieur’. The high point came on 24 October of the same year, when Molière and his troupe performed before Louis XIV, Anne of Austria (Queen of France) and Cardinal Mazarin.It was not until 1665, on 14 June to be precise, that Molière finally obtained the official support of King Louis XIV, marking a major milestone in his theatrical career.Date : until 18 February 2024Venue : Dôme de Paris 34 Boulevard Victor 75015 Paris.Full price : €89Access : Metro line 12 station Porte de VersaillesTram T3a station Porte de Versailles-Parc des expositionsBus number 80 to Porte de Versailles station.

Gustave Eiffel, builder of bridges

A century ago, in 1923, the world lost Gustave Eiffel, a visionary engineer whose legacy transcends the decades. Best known for his ‘300-metre tower’ in Paris, Eiffel had already left his mark on the field of metal bridges long before this emblematic project.The Musée d’Orsay celebrates the innovative engineer he was by highlighting the crucial importance of metal bridges in his career and his legacy as an entrepreneur. His early triumphs, such as the Bordeaux railway footbridge and the Garabit viaduct in France, and the Maria Pia bridge over the Douro in Porto abroad, bear witness to his early genius in the design and construction of metal structures.Thanks to his many technological innovations and his visionary spirit, Gustave Eiffel was able to turn his bold vision into reality with the creation of the famous ‘300-metre Tower’ for the Universal Exhibition of 1889. Today, this emblematic tower remains the eternal symbol of his ingenuity and his remarkable contribution to world architecture.Date : until 04 February 2024Venue : Musée d’OrsayAddress : Esplanade Valéry Giscard d’Estain, 75007 ParisFull price : €16Transport : bus 68, 69, 73 Musée d’Orsay station
