The Opéra Garnier, aka Palais Garnier, made such an impression on me as a first-time visitor that I cannot say what I liked best about it: the grand facade? The grand staircase? The Chagall ceiling? The grand foyer? I admit, I can’t decide, it was all overwhelming and so beautiful! We probably barely scratch the surface all of the things that can be said about the Opera Garnier this episode, but I hope we convince you to go in next time and enjoy its grandeur. The interview starts at 5’44”.
