For anon: Kimilee Bryant in the US tour and on Broadway 

(except that first photo which is from Easter Bonnet, where the POTO ensemble had made a gentle LND parody)

Here you are, Anon! Pictures of the Palais Garnier, my favorite building in the world. :D

The final image in the set shows you the location of Box 5 from the auditorium.

I always thought Box Five was on the other side before I saw this photo set! I keep zooming in looking for Erik.

I always thought it was the one to the right of the circled box

Actually a lot of people think that, since it would seem natural for Erik to select a more grandiose box, but Box 5 is indeed just like the other boxes on the first tier (except that it has a pillar along its left side, which Leroux’s narrator claimed was hollow and was Erik’s hiding place inside the box).

Leroux wrote of Box 5:

"It is a box like all the other first tier boxes. In truth, nothing distinguishes this box from its neighbors."

Here’s a picture of Box 5 from the inside, from darthxerik's dA account, showing the partition wall between Box 5 and Box 7 on the right:

BTW, according to Mme Giry, Erik’s chair was the first seat in the front row on the right.
