The Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux is an opera house in Bordeaux, France, first inaugurated on 17 April 1780. It was in this theatre that the ballet La fille mal gardée premiered in 1789, and where a young Marius Petipa staged some of his first ballets.
The theatre was designed by the architect Victor Louis (1731–1800). Louis later designed the galleries surrounding, the gardens of the Palais Royal, and the Théâtre Français in Paris.

Wow, what a stunning building inside and out. Great disabled access. Loved having a royal box.

Good selection of shops great if you have forgot to buy a present, or need nibbles for train etc but closes at 8pm. Toilet not easy to find and could be some distance from your train so dont leave it til last minute.

Tickets are a little pricey, but the inside of this place is stunning. It's relatively small so there shouldn't be a bad seat in the house. Great place to see some theatre

First experience of French ballet that was great! (Dec 2017)

Beautiful building and quality performances. *However* buyer be warned: if you get a cheap ticket you will get a cheap view. There are many seats that have partial views of the stage. So if you're just going for the music, feel free to get a less expensive seat. But if you want to see the show then treat yo self or you'll end up leaving at intermission;)

Great place to visit. Lots of costumes to look at when we were there and some fine interiors. Even my teenage son had a good time here. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in this lovely city.

I didn't get to see the insides beyond the main stairs, but just those were fabulous enough to warrant a panoramic photograph. I really would have liked to see the main hall and listen to the accoustics. Outside architecture is also made of stunning columns.

Beautiful building, it is a quick stop. Hard for this to compare with so many neat buildings that are free in Bordeaux
