Thank you mr Dru and thanks to friend Kiffkiff! You know I'm jealous! I want that photographer of garnier opera to take pictures of our theaters because I think he really valorize the details...I often don't find picture worth the real value of the building I want to represent...to see them live would be the best choice actually!
Rome opera interiors for example are really gorgeous, but I only find pictures like those...

...that are not really worth of the theater itself, which is so much better live Do you know how to call that photographer? :p

But anyway, since the thread is up again, here are two other little opera theater in two royal palaces, the first one is in the bourbon royal palace in naples:











And the second one is in the royal palace of caserta:

I don't know, I think it's not the same photographer for all this pics of Opera Garnier, I find this pics with Google image. Try Flickr.com too, it's a good alternative at Google.

The Opera Garnier is the most kitschy building in the world.

The "new" Detroit Opera House (opened 1996) is in the 1922 built Capitol Theatre in downtown Detroit. It was the 5th largest theatre in the world when it opened...

One of America's largest indoor ruins is the former 4,050 seat Michigan Theatre in Detroit, which was partly gutted for a 3 level parking structure inside the auditorium shell in 1977. Images include the lobby (before), lobby ceiling (now), the auditorium ceiling, auditorium procenium, great false window, great false window mirrors....

Brick84.... that seaside Roman Amphitheatre in Agrigento was used for the backdrop of much of the signature video of the new 17-18 year olds Italian music sensation IL VOLO...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw3c5d3aBSE

They showed up as guest performers on American Idol a year ago, singing the Neapolitan 1898 classic O Sole Mio... needless to say "they brought down the house" to a standing ovation... and have been touring worldwide to packed theatres and opera houses in Europe and North/South America.

Ironically this (now popular among ages 9-90) Operatic-Pop group made their concert DVD at the most Italian of all American Opera houses... the 1922 built Detroit Opera House.... seen 7 posts back... (I attended this wonderful concert)...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyCjhBkqKB4

Someone labeled them a cross between the Jonas Brothers and the Three Tenors... with the lead singer being the next Andrea Bocelli and Mario Lanza all rolled up in one...

Gosh, they are soooooooo over-the-top. I guess if you're watching a lousy performance, you can always compensate by looking at the ceiling and decor, inside and in the lobbies.

And I can see how uncomfortable some of those chairs are...at least those that haven't been modernized.
