The current opera was built on the site of the former city theatre, which was destroyed by a fire in 1881.
Inaugurated in 1885, the Nice Opera is constructed in the style of the Italian theatres.
The building is so much more than just an opera with its eclectic exterior featuring different architectural styles. Four statues of the Muses are positioned on the North facade and the southern facade facing the sea is of neoclassical inspiration.
The opera boasts a sumptuous interior with its composite capitals and balconies trimmed in gold against a cream background upholstered in red.
