Very classy, attended the opera twice here, very well organized. Impeccable. The seats are very comfortable you could sit hours without any discomfort.

The rooms are wonderful from a bygone era but the vibe is a bit dead. When I first went there was a very strict dress code, you had to hand over your passport and pay 10 Euros to get in ... this time there was none of that which I think takes away from the place as the top of... More

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
