A festival in Lyon’s ancient theatres, beneath the stars!

From the 31 May to 28 July 2023, Lyon’s unmissable summer evening festival will be presenting about 58 performances for over 136000 spectators. As always, it will be a melting pot of artistic expression...

Last updated date : 25/05/2023
From 31/05 to 28/07/2023 daily.
Lugdunum Roman Theatres of Lyon 6 rue de l'Antiquaille - 69005 Lyon 5ème

The festival adopts an open and modern approach, with no themes or constraints, other than the quality and international nature of the line-up.

To provide a few figures, this year’s festival will present 58 drama, dance, music, opera and circus arts shows, including 16 creations, for a total of 131 performances, both in the theatres and outside of the festival site. 

As is the case each year, big names share the line-up with up-and-coming artists, while drama sits alongside dance, circus arts and, of course, music of all kinds, including French chanson, pop, rock, jazz, classical and opera.

Outside of the festival site, circus is returning to Lacroix-Laval, while the Théâtre National Populaire (TNP), the Célestins, Théâtre de Lyon and the ENSSATT will be hosting several plays.
