    Spectacular Paris Opera House (Palais Garnier)

    The excellent novel 'Phantom of the Opera' by Gaston Leroux
    and my favourite musical of the same name
    (by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber)
    are based upon the stunning Paris Opera House.

    The Palais Garnier is a 1,979-seat opera house,
    which was built from 1861 to 1875 for the Paris Opera.

    It was originally called the Salle des Capucines because of its location
    on the Boulevard des Capucines in the 9th arrondissement of Paris,
    but soon became known as the Palais Garnier in recognition
    of its opulence and its architect, Charles Garnier.

    The theatre is also often referred to as the Opéra Garnier,
    and historically was known as the Opéra de Paris or simply the Opéra
    as it was the primary home of the Paris Opera and its associated Paris Opera Ballet until 1989,
    when the Opéra Bastille opened at the Place de la Bastille.

    The Paris Opera now mainly uses the Palais Garnier for ballet.

    Galeries Lafayette, Paris

    Galeries Lafayette is a stunning French department store
    located on Boulevard Haussmann in the 9th arrondissement of Paris.
    In 2009, Galeries Lafayette recorded earnings of over one billion euro.

    It is a part of the company Groupe Galeries Lafayette.

    In 1895, Théophile Bader and his cousin Alphonse Kahn
    opened a fashion store in a small haberdasher's shop
    at the corner of rue La Fayette and the Chaussée d'Antin, in Paris.

    In 1896, their company purchased the entire building at n°1 rue La Fayette;
    in 1905 they acquired the buildings at n°38, 40 and 42,
    boulevard Haussmann and n°15 rue de la Chaussée d'Antin.

    Bader commissioned the architect Georges Chedanne
    and his pupil Ferdinand Chanut to design the store at the Haussmann location,
    where a glass and steel dome and Art Nouveau staircases were finished in 1912.
