I was in the opera to see a ballet show. It was very unique experiance! There are 3 levels where you can sit (2 balconys) and private boxes. I sat in the first level and saw the show reasnobly. On the break you can buy ice cream ( i found it unique to an opera). The building itself is really impressive outside and inside. As i know you cant visit the inside of the opera alone.. only if you buy ticket to a show or orgenaized group.

Vichy opera house is in the grand design of the majority of Europe's opera houses the internal decorations and facilities are in keeping with the design and comfort associated with this architecturally beautiful city. The opera presentation is extremely good, and boasts it's own orchestra. The orchestral players are good, unfortunately no stage design, but of course the singers are commensurate with what people would expect, not world leaders, but the presentation is always quite dramatic.If you are an Opera Fan it is not to be missed in season, and in my opinion would rank with any that you would find in France, other than PARIS.

A classic theatre house of the belle époque, that provides a sumptuous but intimate environment. We went ot a performance of extracts from the operas of Offenbach (a sophisticated version of Gilbert and Sullivan) which was ideally suited to the environment. Vichy is well worth walking around. Our problem was finding somewhere to eat before the opera started and in the end had a hurried and somewhat expensive meal.

The internal structure of the Vichy opera house is amazing for a small city like Vichy. This is something I would have only expected to find in a large European city, but it is fabulous to find it in a small city in France. It also gives a great small community feel to the experience of attending the opera. As an English speaking person, I did struggle to follow the opera "Barber of Seville", as the opera itself was in Italian and the translation obviously in French, but it was great to just listen to the music and sit in this wonderful hall.
