Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux

Designed by renowned architect Victor Louis, the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux was built between 1773 and 1780 and is one of the grandest 18th-century theatres remaining in the world. It served as the National Assembly for the French Parliament briefly in 1781 and was the scene of the premiere of the ballet La Fille Mal Gardéein 1789. This theatre is the oldest in Europe to have never burnt down or needed rebuilding since its erection nearly 250 years ago, and is now home to the Opéra National de Bordeaux, as well as the Ballet National de Bordeaux. Guided tours are available.
