The Palais Garnier, more commonly as the Paris Opéra, is a 2,200 seat opera house in Paris, France. A grand landmark designed by Charles Garnier in the Neo-Baroque style, it is regarded as one of the architectural masterpieces of its time and provides the setting for The Phantom of the Opera, a 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux, adapted many times for stage and film.
