by doug48

designed for napoleon III by charles garnier the paris opera is one of the most beautiful buildings in paris. the building's unique appearance is due a mixture of architectural styles ranging from classical to baroque. underneath the building is a small lake which was the inspiration for the phantom's hiding place in leroux's "phantom of the opera" the opera has moved to the modern opera bastille but the ballet is still performed here.
