Photographer's Note


Light everywhere, revealing the tiniest detail of the "new" ceiling of the opra Garnier by Marc Chagall since 1964, when the painter was commissionned by Andr Malraux (ministry of Culture, then), to offer a more contemporary festive representation surrounding a performance than the original concept by Jules-Eugne Lenepveu, the Muses - hours of day and night...
Over 6 tons of cristal and metal hanging over the heads of the spectators sitting below, right in front of the stage and the orchestra pit...
Light that will go out soon, announcing the entrance of the conductor and the rise of the curtain...

See you in 2005!

PS French lettirate TrekEarthers are strongly advised to take a look at the French version of this note...
