We did not attend a performance, here, but just paid a visit to this beautiful building. Just like so many other extravagantly appointed buildings in France, this was no exception. You will love it.

One of the most beautiful buildings in this wonderful city. It is possible to look inside the front entrance, if one were not lucky enough to attend a performance there.

The building (18th century) is beautiful and a must see. We were very fortunate that Les Plechers de Pearle was being performed. Even though we were seated high, the view of the opera was good. The performance was first rate.

Yes they are at a particular time, although I can't remember what time it was. You get the tickets from the tourist information office which is near to the theatre. You can go without the tour guide as well, but I... More
