This is just one of several rooms surrounding the auditorium. The marquetry floor was preserved by having everyone who entered it slip into cotton-soled flip-flops. It's easy to picture the gowns and black tails here during intermission. Across the hall as we toured this room, the orchestra, chorus and soloists were onstage rehearsing Damnation of Faust.
