A legal fight is about to oppose the French National Hospital of Ophthalmology in Paris and the National Opera Bastille, the newspaper Le Parisien reports. The issue is the project to expand the opera house, which could result in the hospital just behind being completely isolated. Envisaged since the conception of the opera house in the 1980s, the construction of workshops on some 3,500 square meters had never been carried out. The Paris Opera relaunched the case at the beginning of the year, causing concern in the neighbouring hospital.

The adjacent hospital says, the new building will rise to a height of nearly 30 m just in front of the CHNO’s consultation and hospitalization building, which risks being plunged into a semi-darkness all day long.
