The Lyon Opera House
Last updated date : 04/08/2023
Topped by a majestic dome, the former Grand Theatre, redesigned by Jean Nouvel, is a masterpiece of architecture! This beautiful setting is home to a very rich program for this national scene which has an opera orchestra and ballet.
1200 places and a 200-seat amphitheatre. Jean Nouvel has tripled the building’s volume by digging five underground levels to accompany the six levels under the glass dome.
Place de la Comédie - 69001 Lyon 1er
