Musical summer evenings

From the 13th of July to the 4th of September 2020, the arcades of Lyon’s Opera House are being transformed into a lively music venue.

We are delighted to see its return: the Festival du Péristyle is happening this summer!

This free summer festival organised by the Lyon Opera offers an eclectic programme of music from across the spectrum, created in collaboration with other local venues (Marché gare, Périscope, Hot Club...).

For the 2020 edition, there is no outdoor stage but live performances by musicians playing in the amphitheatre, shown on screens placed beneath the arcades of the Opera House. There are two lively sessions every day at 7 and 9 pm.

All summer, you can (re)discover the Argentinian rhythms of Criollando, the mystic pop music of La Féline, and the electronic sounds of James Stewart, among others, while enjoying the delicious tapas (such as burrata and tapenade) on the menu of the Péristyle’s terrace (as of 6 pm).

The full programme of concerts is available on the Opera’s website.

Happy summer evenings are in store at the Péristyle!


Mélina joined our gang this summer, and we're all delighted!She's from the Vendée on the west coast of France, and her eyes are as blue as the ocean that laps its shores. In fact her kind and mischievous eyes are the first thing you notice about her, and you soon realise that despite her gentle and even quite discrete nature lies a boundless source of energy!
