It was interesting to visit here, but I would not come back. The view from the top was very nice. If you like history, you would like here.

The theater was the best part of the performance as it is old fashioned, with movable seats in the dress circle, and very good acoustics resultant from both design and many of the Baroque style decorations. It is in need of renovation and updating nonetheless. Sadly, of all the many performances of La Boheme I have attended, this was the... More

Very beautiful structure in the middle of Bordeaux, with lots of locals and tourists sitting on the steps in front of the building. My wife & I didn't have a chance to go inside as we were only there for a short time and could not time our visit with a show, but think it will be equally stunning on... More

As soon as I saw it reminded me othe ancient theaters. Moreover, the square in which is located is full of people and live. As many buildings on this city, the light at night makes this theatre special

The building is beautiful at night and the square is very animated with many performers. Could not see it inside though for lack of time.

My husband took me to watch "LA TEMPETE" for my birthday and was absolutely lovely! The place is very well kept and no matter where you are, you have a nice view of the show. I recommend to visit!

Our guide was very good. She rushed us a little through the visit but there is so much to say in just one hour. The place is magnificent.

Young guide who spoke good english. The building is magnificient inside and out. Unforunately missed the first ten minutes as the guide didn't come inside to see if people were waiting. But she apologised after and gave me and another person the beginning of the visit at the the so we didn't miss anything.

We go tickets to tour the Grand Theatre. The architecture is quite beautiful and the varied history interesting. The tour was initially unfortunately conducted only in French but given that we were practically out of time, we opted to see it. To our delight, the guide conducted both in French and English. The concert room could not be visited since... More

On our self guided to we went over to the Grand Theatre to see the beautiful building. We did not go inside but as we walked the city keep coming back to the area. Tourist building and the best wine store I ever be in a cross the street.

Thank Michael O
