The Opéra Nouvel (Nouvel Opera House) in Lyon, France is the home of the Opéra National de Lyon. The original opera house was re-designed by the distinguished French architect, Jean Nouvel between 1985 and 1993 and is named after him.
Opera de Lyon. What makes it stand out from other theater buildings is its architectural solution. Jean Nouvel, who wan the contest for renovation of the Opera de Lyon, managed to come up with something completely extraordinary and breathtaking. All black and red, with escalators instead of stairs, the interior swallows the visitor straightaway and takes to a mysterious world of Theater. The building is full of symbols and hidden meanings...Make sure you go there when visiting Lyon.
