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 !

Don't be misled by the name - the Nice Opera hosts everything from symphony concerts, ballet, opera, and recitals. Check out the schedule of performances online before visiting Nice. Tickets are generally reasonably priced with orchestra seats, three levels of boxes, and three rows of seats on a fifth level. Be warned, though, that with the exception of the boxes... More

My wife and I attended an afternoon classical concert at the Opera on a cold day in late January. Though the music making was of good quality it was difficult to stay awake in the stifling air of our overcrowded box. The view of the performers was less than perfect from the back of the box (they sell indivual seats... More

If you have some time, stop and check out the Opera de Nice. We booked tickets to a December ballet early, ahead of our visit. The theatre is historic with three levels of gallery seating that looks down on the acts or up to the stylish ceiling design. Between acts, stop in one of the small rooms with red velvet... More

I've only gone here once but it's in the old town, is a historic building, and has wonderful programming. Something is on, either opera, dance, or theater, each month. Buy tickets at the box office
