    The Opulence and the Segregation

    by keeweechic Updated Oct 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Around the private boxes and also the stage is $15,000 (1981 value) worth of 23K gold leaf giving a very opulent and grand look. The carpeting is the original design but has been reproduced by a British company and laid over hair padding. The rare wool comes from mountain sheep in the northern Scotland Highlands.

    On the upper part of the mezzanine floor there was a separated section. This in its day was for the "Blacks-only". They also had their own toilets up there and separate stairway.
