The Grand Théâtre de Genève on Place de Neuve is an opera house and cultural institution that presents an excellent annual program of ballets, operas, and classical music concerts, as well as occasional theatre performances. Built in 1874-'79 to designs by architect Jacques-Élysée Goss, the Second Empire style tripartite façade features sculptures and ornate moldings. The interiors were redesigned by Charles Schapfer and Marcello Zavelani-Rossi after the original hall was gutted by fire in 1951. The auditorium has a capacity of 1488 persons, with the seating laid out in German-style "square" shape which allows for a full view of the stage from each seat.
