Thursday Challenge—"place (2)"

As in Place de l'Opéra.  This is, of course,
the Opera Garnier, home of the Phantom and—now
that they've built the other (ugly) opera house
at the Place de la Bastille—where you go to enjoy the
ballet (Nureyev and Fonteyn danced here, btw).

  1. I have never been in a place more lavishly decorated (not that I am other than an American urban bumpkin).

    One might wish the lake under there to look like this, but it actually looks like this.

  2. Now this is just the sort of Beaux Art build where opera should be sung, not some modern theater.

  3. WOW! I'd love to see an opera there!

  4. Now, this would really give an excuse to get dolled up if ever one needed it !! All that glisters ... glorious, dear Alexa. Bon weekend, ma chere ...
