A majestic building designed at the end of the 18th century by the architect Victor Louis, the Grand Théâtre is undoubtedly the most spectacular. It stands on the site of the ancient Roman temple of the Pillars of Tutelle. Its elegant and refined neo-classical architecture makes it one of the most beautiful theatres in Europe.
It is one of the few remaining theatres to have been built entirely of wood. It was inaugurated in 1780 with the presentation of Racine's "Athalie". Since 1990, ongoing restoration work has restored the Grand-Théâtre to its 18th-century glory, while adapting it to the needs of our time.
The guided tour includes an exterior presentation of the building, followed by a visit to the vestibule, the Great Staircase and the auditorium.
