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.

First, this theater struck my imagination with its size, it is huge, when I went inside I was breathless from the unique interior like in the royal palace, but finally disappeared and speechless when I saw the hall itself was something ...

Found the Opera House on our first evening walk by the Flower Market - very friendly staff and a lovely evening programme with the Nice Philharmonic Orchestra - it was the Nice carnival season so a packed house for the performance - an excellent evening out.

It is a old and beautiful Opera both from outside and inside, don't miss it on the way of the Cours Saleya, the market in the old city !
