It can be viewed as a part of guided tour of Kings apartments. The auditorium is amazing with rich color and huge chandeliers. Loved all the stories that our guide had to tell about the opera.

Couldn't believe they could fit 1000 people in this tiny theater. If you are staying in Versailles they still do productions here. Very quaint & smart design.

The Royal Opera was part of our guided tour. It was a privilege to sit and be led into the past glory of this magnificent place. We discovered how the stages worked and I loved the idea of a floating floor and how the whole area could be converted into a ballroom. This is not to be missed!

This was part of our private tour. We were able to sit in the lower chairs and everything is original from the 17th century!!! It was only used a handful of times, unbelievable the technology they used to design!

I was amazed to be shown this very special theatre on our private tour. The history is amazing and I am so glad it has been restored to it's original beauty. I would love to see a performance here one day too.

I visited this area on a private tour, but would love to attend a performance here. It is one of the most beautiful theatres I have ever seen and wonderfully restored.

A guided tour is a must to appreciate this visit which may include the main palace. Again bathroom access is an issue

The architect had only 250 days to build this opera house, in preparation for the wedding of Marie Antoinette to Louis IV. The corners cut are visible only when revealed. It is an awe inspiring house.

This tour took me by surprise. They were offering an English speaking tour and we debated on whether or not to do it. We did but honestly, I don't know I would do it again. I would go back and stroll around the theatre - it was so beautiful.

This building is amazing. Every ceiling is intricately decorated and there is marble everywhere. This building rivals the Chateau at Versailles in its beauty and opulence. A must see for everyone that visits Paris.
