The outside of the opera house is quite impressive looking. Unless there is an opera going on it appears you can only gaze at it from outside.

The Opera Theater is right by the Hotel de Ville right on Place de L'Horloge. It's worthwhile to stop and admire the ornate architecture of the building. It's really a beautiful building.

Outside, the opera looks very nice. It is located on Place de l'Horloge. I think it can be seen from the inside only when there is a show.

This is a prominent building of the classical style. It's located next to the Hotel de Ville, and in the lovely place full of trees and cafes.

I really liked the exterior of the Opera and spent some time photographing various details. Take as a whole, it is a bit overdone. But its central location seemed to indicate that regardless of the cities religious focus, the arts were equally important.
