Restaurant of the month: La Crème de Paris
On the Grands Boulevards, it's often difficult to discern the quality of a restaurant in advance. There's something for everyone, from the worst to the best. La Crème de Paris is one of the best. At the entrance to rue du Faubourg Montmartre, this small room tucked behind two imposing takeaway counters is waiting to welcome you.
4 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009 Paris
The opera of the month: Don Pasquale
An old baron, Don Pasquale, thinks he's playing a good trick on his nephew Ernesto by telling him he's going to marry a young girl - which will deprive him of any inheritance. But the charming Norina and Dr. Malatesta catch him in his own trap. Gaetano Donizetti's opera, inspired by the characters of the commedia dell'arte, features a series of disguises, a sham marriage and a fool's game. A whirlwind score, successfully premiered in Paris in 1843, in which the author of Lucia di Lammermoor shows a real talent for comedy and renews the opera buffa form.
