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.

Le Marché Gare

Le Marché Gare is a concert venue which often hosts regional musicians and truly aims to support local bands, although well-known groups on tour perform there as well. A relatively small room for spectators brings performers closer to the audience, creating a dialogue through music. Housed in what used to be the administrative hub of the one-time wholesale market, the venue is unique, infusing new life into this largely industrial neighborhood. Concerts often begin at 7:30 p.m.

La Halle Tony Garnier

Halle Tony Garnier was built between 1909 and 1914 as an outline for a larger city. It was inaugurated for the 1914 Universal Exhibition as a project for an "industrial city". In modern times, this hall has been used for concerts and exhibitions. Up until 1974 it belonged to a slaughterhouse and in 1975 was classified as a historical monument. It was also used temporarily as an arsenal during the first World War. The architect Tony Garnier was inspired by 19th-century glass and steel architecture, and imagined a pure concrete structure covered by a huge steel frame and a glass roof to let light inside. He was more of a theorist than an architect as his buildings included all the functions of a slaughterhouse. But today, the space is used for hosting various musical concerts, theatrical performances and even business events.
