While visiting Opera Garnier is an entirely well-rounded experience, there are some elements and spaces that will charm you away more than others. Here are the top four things that you must pay special attention to when you plan your trip to Opera Garnier:
This stunning room is located on the first floor of the opera house and features ornate decorations, including gilded sculptures, paintings, and chandeliers. It is one of the prime spots where most people click aesthetic photographs and is often used as a backdrop for movies and TV shows, such as Emily in Paris.
One of the focal points of Opera Garnier is its auditorium. It's this place where ballet, concert, and opera performances occur. You will notice the admirable sweeping curve of the balconies, the enchanting ceiling paintings, and the plush red seats. The venue is an excellent blend of the Baroque style of architecture and Renaissance art.
The auditorium ceiling is another essential feature of the Palais Garnier. Painstakingly made by the famous artist Marc Chagall in 1964, the colourful mural depicts iconic scenes from famous ballets and operas, and it's likely to take your breath away!
Besides the famous operas and ballet performances in the Opera Garnier, the place also caters to a complete pre-and-post-show experience. The circular room located on the venue's ground floor, better known as Rotonde du Glacier, is the ideal seating area. It has a beautiful marble bar and a bunch of stunning sculptures and mosaics, which you can appreciate while enjoying a pre-show drink.
