We had the pleasure of having the first ever free guided tour of all parts of the Theatre Royal on Tuesday. This Waterford Crystal chandelier dates from the 1800's. It is one of three hanging in the Theatre Royal which at 220 years old is the oldest original theatre in Europe. Interesting facts learned on our culture tour these past two days :) Money ran out before the chandeliers were finished so the workers in Waterford Crystal banded together and supplied sugar bowls to finish them. So each candle (now bulb) is sitting in a sugar bowl.
The blue is the reflection of the sky through beautiful large windows :)
