Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux

2 Place de la Comédie, 33000 Bordeaux, France

(33) 5-56-00-85-95

If there’s an opera or dance performance at this grand opera house, designed in the 18th century by Victor Louis, it’s worth getting tickets to see the beautiful interiors – it's one of Europe's last and oldest wooden frame opera houses. Compared with Paris’ Garnier, it’s a small scale, which makes sitting close to the performers possible. Many of the productions are modern interpretations – a recent La Bohème was set in the 1960s with a cast that looked believably young for the classic love story.
