This has the most beautiful interior. We bought tickets to the ballet which was excellent and so reasonable compared to London prices. It was a wonderful experience and just to sit inside this lovely building

L'Opera de Vichy is the cultural hub of Vichy, where one is presented with an array of very good musical performances. I suggest that you refrain from selecting a box if your party is more than three, since the boxes are small and do not comfortably accommodate more adults even though they have four chairs. Its setting takes one back... More

A great building with a long history. Really exciting to be in such a lovely setting for a concert or play. Concerts by a local orchestra (e.g. l'Orchestre d'Harmonie de Vichy) are great value at around 10 euros per ticket. Operas, plays and concerts by national orchestras are very expensive and the pricing results in a high average age of... More

This is a wonderful sight to see and we always take the opportunity to take international visitors to the Opera house, if only to see the outside. It is well worth taking the tour internally or catching a show here. (although pick wisely as the performances can be a mixed bag)

Amazing architecture, paintings and fabrics. To see an old opera house with wooden seats, wooden floors and beautiful fabrics is rare.

On the break you can buy ice cream ( i found it unique to an opera). The building itself is really... More

Vichy opera house is in the grand design of the majority of Europe's opera houses the internal decorations and facilities are in keeping with the design and comfort associated with this architecturally beautiful city. The opera presentation is extremely good, and boasts it's own orchestra. The orchestral players are good, unfortunately no stage design, but of course the singers are... More

A classic theatre house of the belle époque, that provides a sumptuous but intimate environment. We went ot a performance of extracts from the operas of Offenbach (a sophisticated version of Gilbert and Sullivan) which was ideally suited to the environment. Vichy is well worth walking around. Our problem was finding somewhere to eat before the opera started and in... More

The internal structure of the Vichy opera house is amazing for a small city like Vichy. This is something I would have only expected to find in a large European city, but it is fabulous to find it in a small city in France. It also gives a great small community feel to the experience of attending the opera. As... More
