One of the places that most people know of, but seldom visit in Paris is the Palais Garnier. People seem to be too busy rushing off to Galleries Lafayette or Printemps to shop, than to pause and see this gem of a building.
You will have especially seen the Phantom of the Opera in the musical drama of the same name as he appears on the grand staircase. So next time you go to Paris make a visit (small charge), and even better see if there are any seats available for a production during your stay.
I have some clients who were wanting to go to the Opera at the end of May, so I asked my darling daughter Sarah Reese, who is living in Paris, to go there to buy the tickets for this couple, as they were unable to buy them online.
So off Sarah went to buy opera tickets. As anyone knows queues are part of daily life, but for her she stood patiently in the line for 5 and a half hours. FIVE HOURS!! Were there any tickets left?? She managed to buy for my travelers two standing only tickets for 10 Euros each!! After all this she is confused and asked “Why didn’t I buy two more tickets for me and my French Beau?”.
