What is the history of the Opera Garnier ?

The Opera Garnier was inaugurated on 5 January 1875 by the President of the Republic Mac-Mahon. Built by Charles Garnier after winning the contest organized by Napoleon III in 1860, the building was meant to be a imperial theatre. Its decorative exuberance of baroque with its facade decorated with sculptures testifies to the desire of Napoleon III. Inside, it is especially the staircase and the thirty monolithic columns of marble which make sensation. The ceiling of the auditorium was decorated in 1964 by the painter Chagall.

In the novel "the Phantom of the Opera", published in 1910, Gaston Leroux speaks about the mysterious tenant of the underground of the Palais Garnier. Far from having invented this legend, the author is inspired by the strange phenomena which have succeeded one another at the end of the Nineteenth century : the collapse of a chandelier during a performance, a machinist found hanged... Imagination or reality ? During the construction of the Palace, a body of water in the basement was discovered. It is said that, even today, the machinists of the Opera feed on fish, which would be the lunch to the lord tenant of the basement.
