Lyon, the former capital of the Gauls, has a cultural heritage of phenomenal wealth. Between the Gallo-Roman theater and the Musée des Confluences, some 2,000 years of history can be explored in the second tourist city in France. Gastronomy is obviously a serious asset for lovers of good food.
One of the largest cities in the country has an opera house to match its glorious past. By inviting Jean Nouvel to rethink the 19th century building, Lyon has acquired an iconic hall famous around the world. Beyond the technical prowess of the rehabilitation, the Opéra de Lyon is particularly renowned for its remarkable programming.
Serge Dorny offers an unmissable event every year with an Opera Festival in March. This season (the last of the great artistic director), iconic women are highlighted. Ariane et Barbe-Bleue by Dukas and Le Château de Barbe-Bleue by Bartók tell the feminine story of trajectories, revolts and renouncements ...
Great highlights of the season!
