Visited for the Jazz festival one evening. A bit different to the seedy dives I normally frequent to watch bands. Nevertheless had a great night in a fabulous setting. A beautiful building worth a visit, especially if you get to see it in use.

Magnificent building, like stepping back in time, well worth the experience, I have been to several performances there & never been disappointed, only once walk out due to the Opera being not my choice!

We did not experience the inside of this magnificent building. But if the inside is anything like the outside, it is quite simply stunning, the architecture is unbelievable.

another attraction was to enjoy the ballet, which was performed in the same building that houses the casino. once you step inside you are transported back to another era. the room where the ballet, as well as opera is performed, is faced with gold glitter, with the two royal boxes on either side. the seats we had were unbelievable- FIRST...

This is a site you have to see in Monaco when you are visiting. Just near the casino, it and the buildings around will give you many opportunities to say WOW!! and take photos!

I am a old rocknrolla, not even a big opera fan, but we go to every production and I love every minute of it! If you have the opportunity, dress UP and GO. The room is stunning and if you want to see the real Monaco society, this is where you will find it. Not really for kids and not... More

Some impressive cars are parked over there and the architecture is really nice. I cannot say how is inside the Casino, as you need a certain dress code and I did not had one.

Spectacular setting, even better than the Paris Opera. Usually very nice performances as well, if you can get tickets it is definitely worth going there
