The myths surrounding the Phantom of the Opera still contribute to the renown of the Palais Garnier today – but when the tales are set aside, this exceptional building stillhouses many secrets. Commissioned by Napoleon III, the Palais Garnier is the symbol par excellence of the Second Empire, a building set apart by its technical and artistic ambition. But first and foremost, it is the product of fifteen years of construction on a massive scale, and the fruit of the obsessive drive of the then-unknown but visionary young architect Charles Garnier. Through previously unpublished archives, unobstructed views, historical reconstructions and accounts by historians, discover the origins and construction process of the extraordinary theatre which hosted the most celebrated artists from Maria Callas to Rudolf Nureyev.
A film by Patrick Cabouat written with Stéphane Landowski
With Damien Roussineau as Charles Garnier, and with the contribution of Mathias Auclair, Bertrand Lemoine, Xavier Mauduit, Isabelle Morin Loutrel, Paul Perrin, Timothée Picard, Alice Thomine-Berrada
