The outside of the opera house is quite impressive looking. Unless there is an opera going on it appears you can only gaze at it from outside.

The Opera Theater is right by the Hotel de Ville right on Place de L'Horloge. It's worthwhile to stop and admire the ornate architecture of the building. It's really a beautiful building.
