    We often go to the opera in London but have never seen La Dame Blanche. It was a truly charming production with subtitles in French and English for the singing, and English for the dialogue . Excellent singers and a beautifully judged production. We were in the 3rd gallery row V 37 and 39 with a view of 3/4 of the stage. The legroom in this €35 seat was so woeful that my 6 ft 2 OH couldnt get in. I was ok at 5.ft 4...just. Luckily it was back row so he could perch on the upturned seat and stand. It is a measure of the quality of the production that he didn't mind.
    As others say, the building itself is wonderful and the bar salon is magnificent. Wine is €6 and a lot of locals had an emmenthal baguette sandwich for €6 at the interval which would have been handy to know about.
    Apparently they are engaged in rediscovering their repertoire from their early history at the moment.
    The man next to me pointed out a box near the stage and said that a Duke had donated the land for the theatre and in return the family could always use the box. Many times the city have tried to get it back for other uses but have failed to overturn the covenant on the land.
    A fabulous night out.

    I am very familiar with the concept, so just accepted an invitation from some friends, without big hopes. Well, I was so wrong. The food was quite fine, even if the menu is short (but I understand that it would be difficult to extend the menu), the list of wine and drinks was very decent. And the artistic level was just amazing, I am an Opera fan so I know what I am talking about. I am sure that some of the singers (which are students for the moment) will become great artists. Think to book, as the place was full!

    The enlightenment encourages travel, science research, and exploration. Art at the moment is all in the neoclassical style, influenced by Roman and Greek sources. If you have a chance, ‘The Oath of the Tennis Court’ by Jacques-Louis David, shows the chaos of revolution. He also painted ‘Death of Marat’ which shows the death of the revolutionary leader. Very topical paintings of this time, reflective of Parisian and french society.
