"Backstage at the Opera"- a performance given at the Grevin Museum in Paris. The museum was originally a waxworks founded around 1880 by caricaturist Alfred Grevin. It included a 500 seat auditorium were live performances were given to supplement the meagre income Grevin was making from the museum part of the operation. The theatre had mirrored walls, and Cheret himself painted the ceiling. The presentations included a mix of magic shows, revues and concerts, anything to bring in the patrons. The Musee Grevin is still in business today.
