I should have liked to have given you all these as New Year's gifts, the queen said, but the winter is very hard, there is a crowd of unhappy people who have no bread to eat, no clothes to wear, no wood to make a fire. I have given them all my money; I have none left to buy you presents, so there will be none this~ MARIE ANTOINETTE to her dauhter MARIA TERESE' :love:

Petit Trinon is a very creative palace.it looks more like a summer retreat for the queen and her ladies-in-waiting,madames,and comtesses :angel3:

It would be the prettiest summer retreat.
Along with the Grand Trianon.

This website has photos of the petit trianon and the Hamlet, this thread has I think it is backstage of the Theatre, it is the 11th photo/post on the page but I don't know what the 12th photo/post on the page is, it shows stairs, does anyone know if it is still backstage of the Queen's theatre? It says what it is in french but my french is really bad.

http://maria-antonia.justgoo.com/versai ... 47-450.htm

the caption for the 11th photo says, "Le couloir qui dessert le haut du théâtre
the caption for the 12th photo says Un des escaliers permettant d'accéder aux étages.

And what became of it right after the Revolution?

Quote:
Going thence to Versailles, we drove to Rambrand's, which is esteemed the principal hotel; but finding, on our arrival, that the best rooms were engaged, we changed our plan, and proceeded to le Petit Trianon in the park, which, formerly the much loved retreat of Marie Antoinette, has, in the strange metamorphosis things as well as men have experienced in France, become a common inn.

Having ordered dinner to be prepared in a small room, once celebrated as the luxurious boudoir of the ill fated queen, we proceeded to view the curiosities of Versailles....

A rough sketch of modern Paris: or, Letters on society, manners, public ..., John Gustavus Lemaistre (1803)

The rest of these pages describe the stripped but largely undamaged halls of Versailles, and then returns to this inn, where the French landlady tries to "skin" the English visitors - to use the word of an unpromising but equitable French judge to whom the victims appeal:

http://books.google.com/books?pg=PA194& ... q=&f=false

The same landlady, it seems, sold tickets to visit the gardens:
Quote:
Before we left Versailles, we visited the garden of le petit Trianon, which is rented by our honest landlady, and which may be seen, by paying a small sum for a ticket at the gate. It is kept in tolerable order, and has still strong marks of that good taste, with which it was originally made. It is really, and not nominally, an english garden; and would, even in our happy island, be deemed as prettily laid out, as the smallness of its extent would permit,

The little theatre, built by the queen, situate within the precincts of these grounds, is still in existence, and has suffered no loss, excepting that of the beautiful glasses with which the boxes were once splendidly illuminated. The last object, to which we were led at Versailles, was "le grand Trianon," that favourite spot of Lewis XVI. This elegant building is also unhurt; and the fine marble pillars, which form the entrance, excited all our admiration.

Wow-I'm particularly fascinated by the theater...I don't know why, but it looks warm, comfortablle and refined, and I'm thinking of all the life that went on inside there...

Remember, Lilly, how did you take this photo at the gate of the theater? It was a bit complicated but we solved it in the end.

I agree Rosalie! A theater needs to have a warm, lively atmosphere. When you sit inside as audience, you can enjoy flavour of past pieces and former actors, actresses. Marie Antoinette's theater is having such an ambience! I think theater is way better than cinema and this one is especially dear for us. Like a jewel!
