One real estimable 19 device century
The palace Garnier , still known to many as the Parid Opera was the world's largest theatre and opera house when it opened on january 5,1875. The opulent opera de paris Garnier was designed by Charles Garnier for Emperor Napoleon III . The opera de paris is one of the great historical major opera houses, each a superior example of theater archtecture of its own century . The cavernous building was one of 171 proposals submitted in an architectural competition in 1861.
The construction of the opera house was plagued by numerous setbacks.One major problems which postponed the laying of the concrete foundation was the extremely swampy ground under which flowed a subterranean lake, requring the water to be removed by eight months of continual pumpimg. More setbacks came as a result of the disastrous Franco-Prussian was, the subsequent fall of the Second french Empire, and the Paris Commune. During this time construction continued sporadically , and it was even rumoured that construction of the operahouse might be abandoned.
