The Grand Theatre of Bordeaux

The stairs at the Grand Theatre are a good meeting point

The Grand Theatre de Bordeaux, is a Theatre in Bordeaux, France. When I visited, it seemed like the stairs were full of people waiting to meet their friends or dates. In addition to ballet and opera performances, the Theatre has a great cafe and restaurant. The entrance gallery looks similar to the galleries surrounding the gardens of the Palais Royal in Paris since they were designed by the same architect. The facade consists of a portico of 12 colossal columns which support a deck on which 12 statues stand.
