Very beautiful structure in the middle of Bordeaux, with lots of locals and tourists sitting on the steps in front of the building.

As soon as I saw it reminded me othe ancient theaters. Moreover, the square in which is located is full of people and live. As many buildings on this city, the light at night makes this theatre special

The building is beautiful at night and the square is very animated with many performers. Could not see it inside though for lack of time.

My husband took me to watch "LA TEMPETE" for my birthday and was absolutely lovely! The place is very well kept and no matter where you are, you have a nice view of the show. I recommend to visit!

Our guide was very good. She rushed us a little through the visit but there is so much to say in just one hour. The place is magnificent.

Young guide who spoke good english. The building is magnificient inside and out. Unforunately missed the first ten minutes as the guide didn't come inside to see if people were waiting. But she apologised after and gave me and another person the beginning of the visit at the the so we didn't miss anything.
