The ambiance is both elegant and sophisticated as Domergue masterfully captures an evening out at the Paris Opera. It is clear, the couple is at a high society event dressed in their finest attire. The background boasts vivid paint strokes in yellow, orange and brown, indicative of balconies and an audience behind the couple. The lady is the central figure as she sits gracefully in her pink gown regarding the viewer with a seductive gaze and bright red lips. Her companion is dressed in a tuxedo, leaning up against her with closed eyes.
