The Opera de Paris is one of the most beloved opera houses in the world. Its intrinsic design, historical paintings, and gorgeous architecture has made it one of the most esteemed music halls we’ve ever known. Their website uses a modernist approach to design, while incorporating the baroque feel of the opera house itself.
Minimalism is a common theme throughout the website, which is immediately evident on the landing page. The translucent, red background is juxtaposed against a full screen image backdrop of the opera house.
The introductory page has a clean line of symmetry, making it visually appealing, and it brings attention to the call to action button at the bottom of the page: “Discover the Campaign.” The website uses a serif typeface with bold letters to enhance the UI and UX of the website.
