Evidence of Theatricals

placeholder gif[American women's war relief hospital - the ward in the Rotunda]

In this picture you can see that behind the beds lies a stage. This was the theatre stage built by Paris, the scene of many entertaining events. For example on his twenty first birthday in 1888 the Paris Opera performed excerpts from Faust here.
