The Grand Théâtre may look like a solid marble temple, with its sweeping Neo-Classical lines and collection of goddesses, but it's actually built on a wooden frame. That makes it special: there are not many wooden-frame theaters left unburnt and still standing in Europe. 

For lovers of ballet, it's special for another reason. The quirky, flirty light-hearted ballet La Fille Mal Gardée premiered here in 1780, and has since become one of the stalwarts of the classical repertoire.

You can take a tour of the theater, but the best way to appreciate the blue-and-gold charms of its interior is to take in a performance. The theater has its own resident ballet and opera companies.

Practical Info

The Grand Théâtre is in the center of Bordeaux, close to the Pont de Pierre.
