    The program was fabulous. The "Trois Gnossiennes" were especially beautiful and the dancers and pianist performed as one voice.

    This was my first opera and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a small theatre but I think this adds to the amazing voices of the singers. There was food provided for free…not sure what as we didn't have any. I'm hooked now and would like to see more. Excellent evening !!

    Muy bien, cuando estabamos esperando para entrar, se acercó una chica del teatro a la cola de entrada y nos acompañó a cambiar las entradas online por los tickets, y todo fué super rapido.

    本場のオペラ。初めてでした。素晴らしかった!次回のパリ滞在の節も是非足を運びたいとおもいます。 恥を忍んで。パリのオペラ座、と言えば「オペラにあるオペラ座」しか思い浮かばない人間で、バスティーユにもオペラ座があるとは、夢思いませんでした。そのため当日、当たり前の顔をしてオペラのオペラ座に出向き、そこで誤りを指摘され、慌ててバスティーユへ駆け付けた次第。1970年代のバリしか知らない者の失敗談でした。

    Fabulous! From picking up the ticket at the box office to the magnificent seat in this wonderful theatre. The seat was close enough to the stage to be able to see all the facial expressions so that was an extra bonus. A great service

    Excellent. Except the gentlemen at the 'Will Call' window refused at first to accept your confirmation since it was for "The Queen of Spades" which he could not (or did not want to) identify with the french title "La Dame de Pique"

    Ich hatte den Eindruck, dass die Musiker und das Ensemble möglichst schnell nach Hause wollten, denn die Tempi waren sehr schnell gewählt, wodurch so manches musikalische Detail auf der Strecke geblieben ist. Mir persönlich war "Alfredo" zu laut, ein paar leisere Töne dazwischen hätten nicht geschadet, zumal der Kirchenraum eher klein war, eine tolle Akustik hatte und es dieses "Geschmetter" nicht dauernd gebraucht hätte. Stimmlich hat mir "Giorgio" sehr gut gefallen. Insgesamt hatte ich einen schönen Abend, denn ich war schließlich im Urlaub.

    The soloists were professional and indeed very good. The choir consisted of good hobbyists I assume. Stage accessories were minimal (small stage), but the atmosphere in theatre was great. In the end it was good value for money.

    Die kleinen Orchesterbesetzung für eine grosse Oper ist gewöhnungsbedürftig, hat aber durchasu ihren Reiz.

    Wonderful venue. Perfect size. Enjoyed tremendously.

  • Luciano P., South Africa

    Sep 2011

    Violetta was exceptional, Alfredo less so, certainly not a charmer. The rest of the cast was somewhat "rigid', this is a melodramma but the first two acts require that the partecipants at the parties enjoy themselves. This lot certainly did not. The venue is very nice but it could do with some air conditioning.

  • Jonathan G., United Kingdom

    A great venue, and a v good performance — special mention to the baritone of Giorgio Germont!
