The feeling you get in this opera house just brings you back in time. You can book tickets online for a show and pick them up when you arrive, or pay on arrival. Be sure to arrive early so you can get a private booth. You must visit here while in Nice!

We have been to several performances at the Opera de Nice (concerts & ballet), & can't recommend it too highly. The building itself is a gorgeous belle époque concoction, with ornate ceilings, faded gold gilding, huge chandeliers & sweeping staircases. Everything looks a little bit shabby chic & in need of a facelift but this kind of adds to the... More

We have had the opportunity to attend a few operas (Cosi Fan Tutte most recently) in this place and it offers a good accoustic. Located in the center of the city near the old town of Nice, it is easy to find restaurants around for a dinner before or after the show.

I really like the looks of the Opera de Nice (official name Opéra Nice Côte d'Azur). Small wonder it’s been designated a historic monument. A building this magnificent deserves to front on a grand square.

Nice opera house is a beautiful building. The grand interior design is the best I have seen .We were lucky to see a ballet performance during our short stay in Nice. The ballet company ( Ballet Nice Mediterranee, Eric Vu-An Artistic Director) gave a most spectacular performance. Well worth a visit if they happen to have a performance during one's... More

I only saw this building from the outside but was worth the visit just to get some great photos and it's close to many other spots of interest

The Nice Opera is one of the central cultural fixtures in the city. It puts on seven operas a year and fifteen concertos. The building is one of the most spectacular in the city.I listened CONCERT PHILHARMONIQUE-« Hommage à Pierre Boulez pour ses 90 ans ».Very nice music and amazing atmosphere.

A great romantic night with the symphony. If you are a couple you can have a nice dinner afterwards (4pm - 6pm performance). The red velvet. high ceilings and ambiance was great. Cheap prices. Tip - Get the box seats on the extreme left or right for cheap, but they are great seats.

In my opinion the best opera house, he deserves the nomination "the best of the best." Around one luxury I really liked interior design. Just a great design, good service, all at the highest level. Setting too great, and the actors are real professionals - the soul is resting. The location is excellent, worth a visit here many more times.
