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.
