The home of the Phantom is just as spectacular as the movie but real. An astonishing building from the glittering foyer and staircase to the auditorium with it's ceiling by Chagall. Went to a charity gala performance and was impressed by the acoustics too.

We purchased tickets to see the opera/ballet Orpheus and Eudydice. Such an absolutely elegant Opera House- the exquisite lobby and velvet balcony seats were only topped by the amazing Marc Chagall painted ceiling!
Treat yourselves, folks- go see at production at the Opera Garnier.

I was fortunate enough by chance to purchase a ticket to see the opera the same evening I was touring Boulevard Haussmann for €10. This allowed me access to the stunningly beautiful Palais Garnier, as well as enjoy a performance (Bartok’s unusual Château de Barbe-Bleue).

Photos do not do the ornate and opulent architecture of this historic musical Mecca justice. The facade of the front face sculptures represent a number of famous composers, and the golden angels above of Harmony and Poetry. The interior of the grand staircase and grand foyer are so expansive yet intricately detailed in design. Finally the main auditorium, made more famous in contemporary times with the Phantom of the Opera, breathes classic grandeur - the chandelier a sight to behold.

A truly memorable evening that were I a resident of Paris, I would be a regular subscription holder and never tire of its beauty - but as a tourist, an icon of Paris not to be missed!

You can sit on the steps for an awesome view down one of the busiest streets of Paris. Just around the corner, it continues into a beautiful restaurant/lounge.
