Lido de Paris in Paris: Tickets

If you find yourself in the city of Paris and are looking for tickets to a show, look no further than the Lido de Paris. This show has tickets suitable for all budgets and is an unforgettable cultural experience.

Located on the famous Parisian avenue Champs-Élysées, this show has wowed audiences since 1946. It has attracted many well-known performers to the city over the years, including Elton John, Shirley MacLaine and Laurel and Hardy.

What is the Lido de Paris about?

The Lido de Paris is a cabaret and burlesque show. It runs twice every day and consists of, at most, 20 scenes. Performers such as magicians and jugglers conduct acts between these scenes to add to the entertainment.

The Bluebell Girls are just one of many other performers, although they are the only ones to feature every day. These dancers are considered the most beautiful and skilled burlesque dancers globally.

You can expect to see lots of lights and special effects contributing to this grand spectacle. Flamboyant costumes and colors also make this show a memorable one.

The opening scene sets the theme for each day. Modern pop songs mix with theater classics from Broadway or popular movies. Performers always wear an array of eye-catching costumes.

You will also see Lido’s famous water effects displayed during the evening on at least one occasion.

How much do Lido de Paris tickets cost?

Ticket prices are available for all budgets. Packages will include various options. Generally, the most budget-friendly ticket should cost between €75 and €85 . These tickets could feature dinner or champagne — or possibly both if you do a little research.

At the other end of the scale, the Lido de Paris ticket prices can be up to €700 for a New Year’s performance. Other occasions, such as Valentine’s Day or Christmas, could set you back around €300.

Mid-range prices with dinner and champagne will likely cost €140 to €180. These tickets should offer a more VIP experience with authentic French cuisine.

With so many operators offering different packages, it will do no harm to check precisely the options you are getting for your purchase before committing.

When is the best time to see the show at Lido de Paris?

The Lido de Paris has two daily showtimes. You can enjoy the first show at 9 PM, and the second is later at 11 PM.

For those with a Lido de Paris ticket inclusive of dinner, you should arrive between 7 PM and 7:30 PM to avoid the disappointment of missing the show’s start.

Audience members not having dinner are requested to begin arriving at 8:30 PM or 10:45 PM, depending on which show you have booked.
