The other day we went to see a Ballet at the Opera Garnier of Paris, and since you seem to have liked my last post about Paris, The Panthéon, I thought I’d show you the pictures I took of this amazing place !
Here is the whole building :
The entrance, almost everything is made out of marble.
Stunning ceiling, Paris and Europe in general has this kind on amazing ceiling art !
Tree of Codes, this is the ballet we went to see. It wasn’t a classical ballet though, it was a contemporary performance that contrasted beautifully with the place, it was a really nice mix of modern dance and very classical architecture. I would have taken pictures of the show, but obviously it was forbidden !
Another stunning ceiling, this is the one in the main theater room, the style is a lot more baroque than the first one ! This baroque style is typically the style used in the times of french kings, in this case the era of Louis XIV.
After the show, we went to a cafe next to the Opera, called “L’entracte“, which means “The Intermission“, making a reference to the theater world. It was very french, particularly the decoration inside !
Since there are too many things to show, here is a grid of all the decorations and details you could see :
That was all the pictures I took !
In a next post I’ll show you the outfit I was wearing for the occasion ?
Tell me if you enjoyed this little tour !
