Most people want to see the ceiling painted by Chagalle in the Garnier Opera House. It was done in 1961 on canvas to cover the original ceiling. I’m not a real fan of Chagalle although I like his angels but this ceiling is wonderful to look at.
Here’s a look at the ceiling with the famous chandelier which, by the way, never fell on the audience as seen in The Phantom of the Opera. There isn’t a lake underneath the building either although there was a water table which had to be built over.
I don’t think I ‘ve ever seen more comfortable seats for any performance. The color was picked out so that the gowns and skin of the women would be set off to a nice affect. Chagalle’s ceiling has some of the same red in it.
