AAW2009 : banner

Since I'm lucky enough to live in Paris, I made a little visit at the Opera Garnier. Some scenes from Neil Jordan's movie adaptation of Interview with the Vampire were shot there. In the hallway especially.
The place is gorgeous in and by itself, so well worth a few pictures...

This Opera is also where the original Phantom of the Opera novel takes place. It's easy to imagine all sorts of grandiose and supernatural beings wandering around.

This model has been at Orsay for a while. Just figured I'd shot it, since I haven't gotten around to take pictures of more than the Great Hall of the Opera for the "Report on places related to Interview with the Vampire". I guess it would help better if someone was to write a story set in the Opera.

... to the stage (notice the odd rooms underneath, and plenty of space for the phantom to hide)...

... to the Main Hall and entrance, finally.
