Academie Nationale de Musique

Poesie Lyrique : Paris Opera : Paris, FR

Just a few pictures of the Academie Nationale de Musique, also known as the Paris Opera. Unfortunately, we didn't get off the tour bus and go in. Based on photos I've seen online, we missed out on something beautiful. Next trip, I guess!

In 1896, one of the opera's grand chandeliers fell from the ceiling and killed a person. The event, coupled with the opera's vast underground, inspired author Gaston Leroux who penned a famous little piece called Le Fantôme de l'Opéra.
