The opera house in Paris is a very famous and beautiful building. It is the biggest Opera House in the world. Work on the building began in 1861, finished in 1875, and cost forty-seven million francs. It has seventeen floors, ten above the ground, and seven under the ground. Behind and under the stage, there are stairs and passages and many, many rooms – dressing-rooms for the singers and the dancers, rooms for the stage workers, the opera dresses and shoes… There are more than 2,500 doors in the building. You can walk for hours and never see daylight under the Paris Opera House. And the opera House has a ghost, a phantom, a man in black clothes. He is a body without a head, or a head without a body. He has a yellow face, he has no nose, he has black holes for eyes…
