T+L Reports: In Paris, Two Classics Born Anew

As if springtime weren't reason enough to visit the City of Light, two Parisian institutions will open again, after extensive renovations. On April 27, the venerable Odéon Théâtre de l'Europe (www.theatre-odeon.fr)—established in 1782 by Marie Antoinette—premieres director Georges Lavaudant's Shakespeare-inspired A Dream (through May 27) in its expertly restored performance house. And on May 2, the Musée de l'Orangerie (www.musee-orangerie.fr) unveils a fresh look, with its 19th- and 20th-century works relocated underground, and Claude Monet's famed Nymphéas displayed as the artist intended them to be: lit by sunlight, in large oval galleries that recall the shape of the garden ponds on his Giverny estate.
