Staff were great!! we had a lovely time there with my friends, lots of fun, very warm atmosphere.
Everything is worthy to see: from the big rabbit : ) to the elegant customs that are on display. Well recommended and the audio media is in both French and English.

Our family of four had a free afternoon and having read about the exhibition, decided to drop in as a means of seeing the Grand Theatre. The 'Alice In Opera Land' exhibition goes on until September 1st and we found it to be an enjoyable and inexpensive way for a family to have a good look around this wonderful building.... I don't think a 10 year-old boy would have sat through 2 hours of evening ballet! Playing carpet croquet in one of the GT's rooms for example was a surreal enough experience in keeping with Carroll's original text. I don't want to spoil too many of the surprises but yes, you do get to explore and sit in the main theatre auditorium at the end.

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.
