Grande Theatre De BordeauxCurrently Open [Closes at 06:30 pm]
A lot of tourists feel more than satisfied enough to admire this beautiful building from the outside. It’s grand, true; Victor Louis was building a neo-classical temple of Arts and Light with Corinthian columns and statues of the nine muses and of Juno, Minerva and Venus. It was beautiful enough that it was briefly used the National Assembly, and now, done up in blue and gold, it’s more beautiful than ever. But to leave Bordeaux without a visit to the opera would be an incredible loss. The theatre has over 200 permanent artists working for it, and over 200,000 visitors pass through it’s doors every year for some truly brilliant performances. Even if there’s no performance during your timeframe, try and get a guided tour of the insides. Two major groups, the Opéra National de Bordeaux and Ballet National de Bordeaux have made the theatre their home.

Last minute ballet tickets for 8 euros! Fantastic considering they were 50 euros the week before. Amazing building friendly staff
Great place to visit. Lots of costumes to look at when we were there and some fine interiors. Even my teenage son had a good time here. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in this lovely city.
Excellent restaurant chez chef Etchebest
I didn't get to see the insides beyond the main stairs, but just those were fabulous enough to warrant a panoramic photograph. I really would have liked to see the main hall and listen to the accoustics. Outside architecture is also made of stunning columns.
You are able to buy tickets for a little as €10. Such an amazing cultural experience.
