Turn Back The Centuries With Royal Opera In Versailles
Posted in Museums / Exhibits le
The Royal Opera in Versailles is one that has been a little unloved in recent decades. The stunning set was created back in 1682 for the wedding of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette and was a great architectural feat. In the 19th century, the room was taken over by Senate. It wasn’t until 2009 that it went back to being a space for the arts. Yet, this was the only time that the public could see the architecture – if they had paid to see a show.
This summer, that all changes as the Palace welcome guests as part of a tour of the building. This is a fantastic opportunity for opera fans to learn more about the set and see the grandeur of the building. Even those that aren’t well versed in opera can appreciate the artistry of the architecture and the history of the palace. The tours take place between August 2nd and September 22 and are not to be missed.
