This week, I reviewed one of my very favorite books, Susan Kay’s Phantom–and I promised pictures from my recent trip to Paris!
The Paris Opera House–or as the Parisians call it, the Opera Garnier. This was taken from somewhere far enough down the Avenue de l’Opera that you can see the dome. I love those gold statues. They shine so bright, even on cloudy days.
This is, I confess, what I was mostly here to see. Phantom fans–Box Five is the bottom tier, in the middle. The big box closest to the stage is the Imperial Box, and the boxes farther to the right are general boxes–and not nearly as secluded as Box Five.
These are the front steps of the Opera House, and I feel remarkably fond of them. You see, when you’re on a literary pilgrimage and have a hotel two blocks away, it’s a wonderful discovery to find out that you can go sit on the steps of the Paris Opera House any time you like!
