Open all year round
With its Italian theatre architecture and its Second-Empire style decor, the Opéra Comédie is a jewel in the crown of Montpellier. Opened on 1 October 1888, it is the work of Joseph Marie Cassien Bernard, a pupil of Charles Garnier, creator of the Palais Garnier, the majestic national opera house in Paris. It houses the original statue of the Three Graces, which are made of marble and classified as a historic monument, representing the emblematic goddesses of the city. Among the sculptures and paintings, gilding and hangings, the tourist office takes you behind the scenes of the opera house and deep into its history.
Built in 1990, the Opéra Berlioz of Montpellier is the city’s second opera house. Located inside the Corum building, this new 800 m² space has hosted famous performances, such as Richard Wagner’s operas, since its construction. Geared towards symphonic music, the programme also features lyrical and contemporary styles.
Just a two-minute walk from the Opéra Comédie and ten minutes from the Corum, the hotel’s location is ideal for enjoying musical evenings.
The magic of the place continues to the Royal Hôtel in an atmosphere combining Haussmannian, industrial and contemporary styles.
