We were staying near here so saw it every day, such a beautiful building during the day and all lit up at night. We did go in to the foyer area to admire the columns, ceilings and statues. Would have loved to have a peek inside the main part of the building but nothing on when we were there.

The theater was the best part of the performance as it is old fashioned, with movable seats in the dress circle, and very good acoustics resultant from both design and many of the Baroque style decorations. It is in need of renovation and updating nonetheless. Sadly, of all the many performances of La Boheme I have attended, this was the... More

It was interesting to visit here, but I would not come back. The view from the top was very nice. If you like history, you would like here.

Very beautiful structure in the middle of Bordeaux, with lots of locals and tourists sitting on the steps in front of the building. My wife & I didn't have a chance to go inside as we were only there for a short time and could not time our visit with a show, but think it will be equally stunning on... More

As soon as I saw it reminded me othe ancient theaters. Moreover, the square in which is located is full of people and live. As many buildings on this city, the light at night makes this theatre special

The building is beautiful at night and the square is very animated with many performers. Could not see it inside though for lack of time.
