David and I had both never been inside the Paris Opera and tour was not happening today since there was a matinee of the ballet school kids performing. What to do? Go see the ballets school kids perform.
The building is just stunning inside and out. I would love to have been able to get backstage and down in the bowels where the Phantom hangs out, but we did get into a booth, stall, private balcony whatever where it was completely covered in material and there was a mirror, beautiful coat hooks and basically a fainting couch for our private use.
