Up on the Roof

Sarah Brightman, "world's favorite soprano", flees to the rooftop of the Palais Garnier — Opéra national de Paris — as Christine in Phantom of the Opera—perched here under one of Eugène-Louis Lequesne's magnificent twin statues of Pegasus.

. . . Christine breathed freely over Paris, the whole valley of which was seen at work below . . .
