Photographer's Note

A late blue hour shot of the floodlit Timisoara Opera House (Opera Națională Română din Timișoara). It shares the building with the Mihai Eminescu National Theatre. Completed in 1875, the building was twice devasted by fire in 1880 & 1920 but rebuilt both times. During the Ceaușescu regime, protestors stormed the building in December 1989, and gave speeches from the central balcony to the crowd of 40k people in the square aggrieved by the behaviour of Ceaușescu. Timisoara was the first Romanian city to protest, and the movement took off all over Romania to depose Ceaușescu.
