I went to the Opéra de Lille (from Paris) in mid-January expressly for its production of Handel's "Il Trionfo del Tempo..." under the baton of Emmanuelle Haïm and her Le Concert d'Astrée. It was an extraordinary experience. However, this should not be the venue for an amateur's opera review, but a commentary on the building and its location in the... More

It was our first time in Lille and we stayed here, and had a wonderful weekend.The room was lovely and very clean. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful,recommending local places to go and best restaurants to eat at. We returned a year later to find the hotel had a modern refurbishment which was great.

This is lovely classical theatre, very spacious in the foyer areas on every floor - above the stalks are four more tiers od seats with excellent sight lines, except of course that... More

Only viewed it from the outside and through the doors. The vaulted ornate ceilings look like one would expect a Grand Francais Opera House to look.
