The Garnier Opera House is an absolute wonder to visit Paris. The building is extremely luxurious both in appearance and in interior. Every time we pass this intersection on sunny days, we can't help stopping to have a good look. The interior decoration is more gorgeous, even if you don't watch the performance, you must buy a ticket to visit. Paris Opera House originated from the imperial Royal family. As early as Napoleon's time, opera was sought after by the Royal family. Haydn and Beethoven were both guests of Napoleon. Moreover, Napoleon dreamed of building a beautiful opera house. It was not until more than half a century later that 171 architects participated in the project bidding that the opera house was truly planned. At that time, all submissions were submitted anonymously. The works were identified only by numbers and slogans. A bidding architect named Garnier won the bid with slogans "I am very enthusiastic and expect very little". Since its completion in 1875, there have been different curtain calls every night. Although the opera house can only accommodate 2,200 seats, it has the largest stage in the world. I watched a modern ballet with my friends. When I entered the opera house, I was shocked by the magnificent marble decoration and sculpture. The staff in black clothes surrounded you in twos and threes, and then I started dancing to take you in. I felt very lively and avant-garde. Half an hour before the formal performance was an experimental performance, with casual-clothes performers dancing in all corners of the opera house. Performing a total of four pieces of dance music, choreography, clothing and music are very avant-garde, changing my traditional impression of ballet. The last song is a modern music with a strong sense of rhythm. The crystal chandelier at the top of the Opera House flashes like the spotlight in club. Suddenly, an actor jumps up beside you in every box. When all my friends come to Paris, I strongly recommend the Garnier Opera House. It's better to have enough time to watch a performance. The sensory shock can never be described in words.
