Owner description: Considered by many to be the cultural heart of the city, this elaborately carved opera house surprises the senses with its fine architecture and interior design as well as its world-class performances.

See a show! Sure, they offer tours at certain hours, but to see a theatre like this one, seeing live entertainment at this venue is really the way to go. We saw Coppelia, a comedic ballet that was a great show at a great venue. One of the last surviving wooden theatre houses in Europe.. a fire station is adjacent and the building is kept close eye on.

It was worth the ticket price to see the inside of this typical European Opera House. However, if you wish to see the show make sure you have the most expensive tickets. Gave up at the interval as I could only see the dancers when they were in mid air!

Went to see Coppelia at the theatre on 1st July 2013. The building is gobsmackingly beautiful from the outside, even more so when lit up at night. The inside does not disappoint, it's truly magnificent.

The production we saw was by the Bordeaux ballet company and it was superb. Thoroughly enjoyable experience in a very grand building indeed. Well worth a visit.

As there was a matinee show on, you were allowed to walk around free of charge. The wall and door paintings are wonderful. There was face painting for children, ballet dresses on show and a video of rehearsals. Lovely to see such beautiful architecture and chandeliers and wall paintings. There were In House Guides who spoke english and keen to help and explain any aspect of the Theatre. Excellent unexpec ted walk in visit !

Looked very interesting - from the outside. Too bad the guide from the tourist office doesn't tell you this.
