If in Bordeaux the Grand Theater is a must to see with its colonnaded front of 12 Corinthian columns topped by a balustrade gallery bearing 12 statues of Muses and goddesses. There is plenty to see around here but a great place to start.

One can't avoid seeing the Grand Theatre when visiting Borfeaux. This is the city center, the theater is very beautiful, and you have so many cafes and restaurants nearby.

We were very lucky and were able to get tickets for La Boheme in the Grand Theater in Bordeaux. An extemely classical Theater with loges all around. The opera was superbly sung especially the 2 main parts - Mimi and Rodolpho. Worth a visit.

Tickets seemed to be easy to purchase from a desk just inside, and near the shop. A security person at the entrance will guide you there.
