Grand Theatre Tips (18)

Le Grand Théâtre

From 'Place gambetta', following 'Cours de l'intendance' we get to the 'Grand Theater'. This neoclassical theater was designed by Victor Louis at the end of the 18th century. It opened its doors in 1780, and since then it has been the center of the artistic life in Bordeaux. In 1991 the inside of the theater was restored, its original blue and gold colors were respected. The theater's beautiful portico is decorated with 12 Corinthian style columns. On the top of the facade are 12 statues; nine represent the art muses and three the goddess Juno, Venus and Minerva.

Grand Theatre

Though I didn't go inside Grand Theatre, I was very impressed with the little I saw. This is a huuuuuge building that is brilliant from whatever side you see it from! Looking at the intricate detail on each statue at the front of the building, you will truly be astounded by the amount of effort put into the construction of the building! The steps outside the entrance of the building are really inviting...so go and sit down when you visit it!

The Grand Theater

Twelve Corinthian columns support the entablature on the peristyle that is , in fact, an audacious piece of bulding for it is held by a metal tie placed inside the construction, compensating for the enormous thrusts fro the flat vaulting. This invention remained famous and is known as "Mr. Louis Nail. " Above it are the twelve statues by Berruer and Van Den Drix, representing the nine Muses, Juno, Venus and Minerva
