A new architectural marvel located right in the center, just behind the city hall. The Lyon Opera was originally the work of Jacques-Germain Soufflot, but in the mid-19th century it was remodeled following architects Pollet and Chenavard's designs, and finally in 1993 the building was crowned with a striking semicircular glass dome designed by Jean Nouvel, one of the current top French architects. The building combines neoclassical and contemporary styles, resulting in a simply spectacular whole with a capacity of more than a thousand spectators and a simple décor. It's known for its great variety of programming throughout the year, including theater, classical music recitals, jazz and dance exhibitions. The best part? A wide range of prices, allowing all audiences to attend.
