On April 7th 1780, the Grand Theatre in Bordeaux was inaugurated with a performance of Athalie by Racine before an audience of 1,700 people. More than two centuries later, the theatre's restoration allows it to be more in tune with modern stage designs.
A fine example of architectural art of the eighteenth century, the Grand Theatre remains dedicated to lyrical theatre, ballet and comedy.
The Theatre was also used as the setting for some of the scenes in the film Beaumarchais, l'insolent.
