The Palais Garnier, the grand neo-baroque building, is an elegant 1,979- seat opera house, which was built between 1861 and 1875 for the Paris Opera by architect Charles Garnier on the orders of Napoleon III. The theatre ,the Academie Nationale de Musique , was often referred to as the Opéra Garnier, the Opéra de Paris or simply the Opéra. Today the Paris Opera (Palais Garnier) hosts ballet dance performances and classical music concerts, and occassionally an opera. More often, operas in Paris are performed at the Opera Bastille. The Palais Garnier is probably the most famous opera house in the world. This is at least partly due to its use as the setting for Gaston Lerouxs 1911 novel The Phantom of the Opera and the novels subsequent adaptations in films and Andrew Lloyd Webers popular 1986 musical.
