It is one of the beauties of the Chateau Versailles. XV. Louis ordered this littel theater and it is still in function. We had a very good Xerxes opera performance. The only problem, you can't choose your seat, and even you have the highest category, the chairs are not for today use.

Its a very good place to visit and would be in my top 20 places to go in Paris. You don't have a lasting memory but it is right next to the big shopping district so you will invariably pay a visit here.

This opera is not only beautiful, not only old, it is THE opera of the Versailles' palace, THE opera built by Louis XV, THE opera where the Bourgeois Gentilhomme of Lully has been plaid for the wedding of Louis XVI & Marie-Antoinette, so it is an opera that you cannot miss. I went there twice in my life, not enough,... More

Last night we saw "Darnabus", a wonderful Baroque opera by Jean Philippe Rameau at the Royal Opera at the Château de Versailles greatly performed by "l'Ensemble Pygmalon". It gave us a great opportunity to walk around the little theater before the opera started and during the intermission. The feeling of wonderment already starts when you pass the Royal Chapel, a...

I dedicated my visit to Versailles to attend Mozart's opera gala in the Royal Opera House. I booked a room in the Trianon Palace Hotel, a dinner in La Veranda and a premium ticket to the performance. The whole trip is a dream. The opera house is backed up with history that could not be matched with any other. The... More

Whole place gorgeous. Architectural masterpiece. We hired a tablet with earphones which was a personal virtual tour. The Phantom of the Opera box is great to see too. Lots of photo opportunities, some might think a little over the top but I loved it
