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.

Grande Theatre De Bordeaux Reviews & Ratings
I like the Bordeaux city of France. I have been here for a couple of all might be three days and really had enjoyed the visit. But I have to tell, we were coming on the cruise ship and for some reason the cruise ship couldn't go to the the port of Bordeaux due to the some stupid protect on the bridge. I'm not sure what it was about because the cruise ship was able to work to go there the very same night.
Very impressive building from the outside and inside. Went to a lunchtime opera - €10 - mainly to view the interior but ended up really enjoying the show as well. Very well patronized by the locals as well who gave a standing ovation and the singer then obliged by doing a number of less "high brow" numbers and the audience joined in with the singing. Quite a treat!
Beautiful building worth a visit! Even greater if you can attend a show. It is not too big so you have a very intimate feeling in the loge.
If you've got a city pass and get in for free, it's worth a look. If you are paying to get in, I wouldn't bother. We wandered around but found that we were in and out within 20 minutes. The art installations were in French (obviously) with no translation provided to explain their meaning - one was just a load of rubble in pots spread across the floor! The hall was beautiful but unfortunately I can't say it was worth the 9.50 euros per person entry fee.
Great place with great architecture. Tram rail next to it so it has easy access. The surroundings are also really nice. Definitely worth a visit because you can see lots of other things as well.
