A lot of Opera Houses have row upon row of horseshoe shaped boxes of seats stack up at the sides
and back of their auditoriums. What folks don't realize is that these make for poor sight lines for
watching the performance. The orchestra level seats are generally the best in the house in these
venues.

But good sight lines are often found in opera houses that were former theatres (common in the USA)
unrelated to Opera. The 1922 built Capitol Theatre, now the Detroit Opera House has a large balcony
crossing over the auditorium. This allows for much better viewing and sound, than if there were row
after row of Opera boxes at the back of the auditorium. One reason for this is that many of these
venues were built for Vaudeville... where a distance of 100 ft. or less is required for at least some
intimacy with the stage act. And the first few rows in the front of the balcony in this type of theatre
is usually among the most desirable (and therefore costliest) seating in the house.

“French romances occupy a central position in the development of medieval European
literature. Their most popular subject matter by far was the Arthurian legend, which, though it
had its origins elsewhere, was first cast in romance form in France: the Round Table, the
tragic love story of Lancelot and Guinevere, and the notion of the Grail quest were all French
innovations."

You need to more informed about the world "kitsch" The Palais Garnier is anything but kitsch, very ornate yes but that does not imply kitsch.
Almost every hotel building in Las Vegas is kitsch, (monuments to bad taste) if you can't see the difference then learning about the history of architecture is the answer!
