Lyon Opera

art & culture

Renovated by the architect Jean Nouvel, it is nicknamed the ‘Nouvel Opera'.

Its unusual appearance surprises as much as it delights. The Lyon Opera has one foot in the classical and the other in the contemporary, both in its architecture and its programming.

Renovated by Jean Nouvel, all that remains of the old building are the four walls and the public foyer. Its seasons still combine various repertories with finesse, in music as in ballet.

Do not miss the opportunity to attend a show, especially since many companies will give their first performances here before going on international tour.
