    Description:

    Garnier had the idea of constructing the different parts of the building (the foyer, the auditorium and the fly) in distinct masses and decided to arrange them in tiers in such a way that the perspective varied in depth, gradually increasing the concentration on the façade. Garnier set out the low volume of the foyer in a very emphatic manner, as he did the auditorium and the immense gabled fly tower, which was of an impressive height: more than 60 m high, or three times the height of Parisia…

    Description:

    Notable composers in the history of the Opéra-Comique include Auber, Halévy, Berlioz and Bizet. A fire at the Salle Favart on 25 May 1887 resulted in the death of 84 people. The building was destroyed and the director Léon Carvalho was forced to resign, although later he was acquitted of blame and resumed the helm at the company from 1891 to 1897. The third Salle Favart was built on the site (architect Louis Bernier). It is an adaptation of the composition of Charles Garnier’s Opéra (1861…

The Opéra Royale de Versailles was converted for the use of the Sénat of the Third Republic, ca. 1876-1879. The theater was res…
