Opéra de Toulon
Completed in October 1862, the Opéra de Toulon is the second-largest opera house in France—one of many constructed in the middle of the 19th century, like the Palais Garnier in Paris
. Designed by Léon Feuchère, it is an early Beaux-Arts building with projecting temple-fronts crowned with sculptural figures over its arcaded entrance. The lavish interior includes a massive ceiling painting by Louis Duveau, whose works also decorate the interior of the Louvre.
