A photo of the National Opera of Lorraine on the Place Stanislas in Nancy.
"The Opera House was once located at the site of the Museum of Fine Arts, Place Stanislas. Built during the reign of Stanislas Leszczynski in 1758, this building called Comedy Theatre, was completely destroyed by a fire after a rehearsal opera Mignon, on the night of 4 to 5 October 1906. Construction of a new opera was immediately decided. a architectural competition launched in 1906, and it is Joseph Hornecker and Italian theater , a pastiche opera of the eighteenth century, more suited to academic standards of the time, which are selected by the jury ...
The location ... the new theater is the source of a series of controversies. Indeed, some would like a more central location in relation to the development of the city, but many believe it is essential to keep the operatic stage in the heart of the historic district of the city of Nancy, built at the height of the reign of Stanislas . The separation of church and state will settle the controversy, since 1909, the state takes possession of the Hotel Farms (formerly belonging to the Bishopric), which will allow the maintenance of the Opera Place Stanislas in front of the old building destroyed by fire some years ago.
The new theater was inaugurated on October 14, 1919 because of the First World War delayed its construction .... "

Impressive architecture, the Opera House's beautiful blend of various historical elements with lots of statues and art applications. I am drawn to the golden gates on both sides. And would enjoy sitting outside at a table, relaxing and dreaming.
Thanks for sharing,

Des sièges intéressants pour apprécier la magnifique architecture.
Ce que j'aime beaucoup ici, c'est l'éclairage à l'intérieur du bâtiment qui donne les fenêtres de telles belles teintes rouges.

C'est un plaisir d'admirer la place Stanislas attablé à une de ces terrasses. Belle mise en image de l'Opéra et de l'une des grilles attenante.

you have used the overcast conditions very well to enhance the golden colours of the very attractive Opera house,the lights inside help to create an extra interest.
Clarity is first class.

First of all, I also really enjoy your newest photo of the festival but this one really caught my attention.
What i like about it is the angle you chose to take this photo. and all those table and chairs helped out too, as doe the long lines on the ground.
interesting history of this Opera House...would have loved to see the original built back in 1758!
enjoy your day

le premier regard est positif mais rapidement on perçoit le recadrage de la photo et aussi des zones qui manquent cruellement de piqué et également une netteté assez aléatoires en général....le portail de gauche est amputé. C'est dommage car le cadrage pourrait bien mettre en valeur le batiment.
