Think of Me

Let’s return to Paris for today. This is the Palais Garnier. It is the gorgeous opera house that stands in the middle of the city. It was originally designed during the reign of Napoleon III. However, what drew me too it was that it is the supposed theatre that inspired Gaston Leroux to write The Phantom of the Opera.

Like Little Shop, Phantom is another one of those shows that I love with a passion. It meant that when we traveled to Paris, I had to see the opera house. It did not disappoint me… It was truly the majestic setting that i had imagined for years. Backed and lit with the beautiful blue sky, It was literally the perfect time for me to see it. And I couldn’t be happier with the image.

“Theatres are curious places, magician’s trick-boxes where the golden memories of dramtic triumphs linger like nostalgic ghosts, and where the unexplainable, the fantastic, the tragic, the comic and the absurd are routine occurences on and off the stage. Murders, mayhem, political intrigue, lucrative business, secret assignations, and of course, dinner.” ― E.A. Bucchianeri
