Berlioz gave a concert here on 8 June 1859 at the invitation of the Société de Sainte Cécile. The concert was the only one that Berlioz gave in Bordeaux.
Formerly called the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux, it was designed by the architect Victor Louis (1731-1800) and inaugurated on 17 April 1780. In 1991 its interior was restored to its original colours. Today the theatre is home to the Opéra National de Bordeaux.
Hector Berlioz Room – Park-Hotel Erbprinz in Weimar
The German text on this postcard gives the dates of
performances of Berlioz’s works in Weimar between 1843 and 1863, conducted
either by Berlioz himself or by Liszt. In his visits to Weimar from 1843 to 1863
Berlioz stayed at the Hotel zum Erbprinzen, the predecessor of the
Park-Hotel Erbprinz. The original hotel dates back to 1737. It was rebuilt in
the 20th century and demolished in 1989. See Berlioz
in Weimar for a detailed account of Berlioz and his relationship with Weimar.
