Several indicators testify to the success of the Paris Opera House between 1995 et 2004 during the mandate of Hugues Gall: the creation of a lyric repertory and continuation of an eclectic choreographic programming, the public attendance and the control of economic equilibrium. These results take more relief when compared with those of Metropolitan Opera of New York - the Met -, the Vienna Opera House - Wiener Staatsoper -, and the Bayerische Staatsoper of Munich, houses of opera of comparable size and ambition.
