The Selby: BoazMazor - Color!
She stared at the empty, opulent theatre. “This stage is our home, brother,” she whispered, gripping his hand tightly. “It’s where we found a family.” And now it was going to be ripped away, all because of one lousy name being stripped from them. It’s not like the name had ever done much for them before, and now it would be their ruin. She set her jaw, vowing to get this life back. No matter what. Even if it killed her. Even if it would kill others. Finally, being an actress would pay off.
The origin of all drama- the curtain. The red, velvet, gilded curtain. But what lies behind?!

The Palais Garnier is a 1,979-seat opera house. It was originally called the Salle des Capucines because of its location, but soon became known as the Palais Garnier in recognition of its opulence and its architect, Charles Garnier. The theatre is also often referred to as the Opéra Garnier, and historically was known as the Opéra de Paris or simply the Opéra, as it was the primary home of the Paris Opera and its associated Paris Opera Ballet until 1989.
Paris Opera - I went to the ballet here on a previous visit to Paris. We got our tickets the morning of the show and got a significant discount for the evening performance. Check at the "will-call" counter for the same-day special tickets. Way more fun to see an opera or ballet one evening than to pay for the tour during the day (since you get to wander the opera house before the show/during intermission). Plus it's a great excuse to dress up and be fancy :)

Diana Vreeland's (whose memoir documentary is out this month) legendary living room. Of its inspiration she notoriously said, "Red is the great clarifier - bright, cleansing, revealing. It makes all colors beautiful. I can't imagine being bored with it - it would be like becoming tired of the person you love. I wanted this apartment to be a garden - but it had to be a garden in hell."
