Opéra National de Lyon

If there is one opera house that bears witness to the theatrical past of its town, then it is the Opéra Nouvel. This opera house was built between 1756 and 1832 to cater to the growing popularity of opera in Lyon at the end of the 18th Century. Following a competition set up by the Council of Lyons, the Opera House was renovated by the architect Jean Nouvel who retained its original structure and the four outer facades whilst giving it a modern facelift. It now accommodates a corps de ballet, an orchestra as well as many rehearsal rooms, storage areas for costumes and props. Apart from opera performances, audiences will definitely enjoy the impressive line-up pf dance shows, cultural events and concerts featured every year.
