‘They are wrecking the Palais Garnier’main
Operagoers are outraged at the removal of a number of partitions at the old Paris Opéra in order to cram in more seats in the central balcony.
A petition has gone up to stop the vandalism, ordered by Opéra director Stéphane Lissner, apparently without Ministry authorisation. The Palais Garnier ought to be untouchable. It belongs to us all.
