Théâtre de l’Académie Royale de Musique (a.k.a. the Salle de la rue Le Peletier, or casually as the Paris Opéra, or simply as the Opéra) was the official theatre of the French theatrical institution known as the Académie Royale de Musique from 1821 until 1873, and was principal venue of the Parisian opera (from 1822) and ballet companies until its destruction by fire in 1873.

The theatre was designed by the architect François Debret, and its construction was completed in only one year, replacing the previous theatre which had occupied its space. It was inaugurated in 1821.

The Théâtre de l’Académie Royale de Musique is referred to under many names, the most common being the Paris Opéra, Opéra de Paris, Grand Opéra, or simply as the Opéra.

Well detailed image Kristof, the framing shot in both side of the structures is very interesting. What I feel B&W is also nice for this one IMO. Well composed!

Hello Kristof!
Wonderful picture!
Beautiful photo!
Fantastic effect!

Szia Kristóf,
ismét egy tökéletes kép, amit már megszokhattunk tőled. A technikai részt kihagyom, minden ok. Az ablakokon áttűnő csillárok fénye még inkább megdobják a kép értékét.
További jó képeket kívánok.
Szia Laci

Hi Kristof,
Nice capture of this piece of historical architecture. The details are well seen and the reflections of the columns in the window are pretty cool. I like how I can see the lights inside the building. Nice shot Kristof.
