The Opera Garnier (Palais Garnier), the masterpiece of theatrical architecture of the 19th century is located in Paris 9th arrondissement near the Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann. The theater is richly decorated, built by Charles Garnier. The grand staircase, whose first ten steps form a pompous stairwell, leads to the large foyer which opens onto the flower-molded boxes. Outside and inside, the play of white stone and colored marbles with the golden bronzes of the statues underlines the majesty of the proportions. The new frescoes of the brightly colored ceiling were designed and made by Marc Chagall in 1964. In the middle is suspended a huge six-ton crystal chandelier. The atmosphere of the Opera district is very friendly with its restaurants, lively bars, shops, cinemas, sports halls and fashionable trendy shops at the Boulevard des Italiens, Avenue de l’Opera and the Boulevard des Capucines.
