saw the Opera House as part of the individual tour. The guide was excellent. If it is open to viewing, it is worth the time to visit.

Only visible through the guided tours, the Opera is a little jewel away from the agitation of the main area of the Palace. Worth a visit !

The Opera hall in the Versailles gives the royal feeling, its stunning and amazingly beautiful, hard to describe in words. The details of the paintings on the walls is superb. Surely one of the highlight of Versailles.

The room was very nice, on the day we went you could just peek inside. It was quite busy. We did not purchase the audio tour, but those who did blocked the entrance- actually they pushed ahead..annoying

I did not really saw the opera as this was the part of the tour, but I did hear the rehearsal. The acoustics were amazing, and the opera itself a piece of beauty.
