Palacio de Bellas Artes

Another bookmark from this beautiful building in Mexico City.

The most impacting aspect is the stage “curtain” which is a stained glass foldable panel created out of nearly a million pieces of iridescent pieces of colored glass by Tiffany’s in New York. This stage curtain is the only one of its type in any opera house in the world and weighs 24 tons. The design of the curtain has the volcanos Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl in the center. Around them is a Mexican landscape surrounded by images of sculptures from Yautepec and Oaxaca. This design was inspired by work done by artist Gerardo Murillo (Dr. Atl)
