Built by Jean-Louis Charles Garnier, a French architect, best known as the architect of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo and Opera of Paris. The opera house is a treasure of the 19th century architecture.
Built of marble from different countries, with various colors, it is home to the double staircase leading to the music foyers and the various floors of the theatre. At the bottom of the stairs, a true theatre within the theatre, two female allegories holding torches to greet spectators.
