Very interesting history - one of only a dozen operas remaining from this era. Was built for marriage of Marie Antionette to King Louis. All of wood and painted to look like marble, bronze, etc. Access not available unless you are on a guided tour.

L'Opera Royale is situated inside the Palace of Versailles. We've heard some classical music of the medieval epoch, interpreted at some strange musical instruments.

saw the Opera House as part of the individual tour. The guide was excellent. If it is open to viewing, it is worth the time to visit.

Only visible through the guided tours, the Opera is a little jewel away from the agitation of the main area of the Palace. Worth a visit !
