“Queen of Halls, the Victoria Hall of Geneva”
Review of Victoria Hall

Victoria Hall

Attraction details
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Although relatively small by European standards, the Victoria Hall, a few minutes stroll from the gorgeous Place Neuve, boasts excellent ecoustics and a setting evoking the brilliance of the belle époque. Rachmaninov's 1st piano concerto was a delight, followed by Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique. Interior is truly beautiful with its gilt ornamentation, frescoed ceilings, red velvet seats and plush royal box. This more than compensates for the chaste, almost dull, reception area, although Winterhalter's portrait of Queen Victoria (after whom the hall was named) is well worth admiring. Champagne in the bar is ok but if you have time, catch your apéros at the Café Lyrique, just 3 minutes away.

Victoria Hall is such an amazing Theatre Hall. Located in the downtown of Geneva , it give the feel of moving back 100 years. The site is good with exceptional architecture.

Rather large by Geneva standards, this concert hall has very nice acoustics with uncomfortable balcony seats and cheaply decorated interior.

If you have an opportunity to go to a concert in the Victoria Hall, it is definitely worth a go, the room si simply beautiful. Occasionally not only clasical music is performed there, I for example went to a concert of the Portuguese Fado singer Mariza there. Keep an eye on the programme for this kind of events.
