Royal Opera, Versailles – in 1685 Hardouin-Mansart designed an opera room at the tip of the north wing but this project was delayed. In 1769, Gabriel was commissioned to build a theatre to host the festivities honouring the marriage of the Dauphin (Louis XVI) to the Archduchess of Austria-Lorraine, Marie-Antoinette. The theatre we see today was built, a lush combination of blues, pinks, and golds.
