This stands in a wonderful area across the road and square from the Parc de Bastions. It is truly an impressive structure which is architecturally wonderful and a sight to see. I didn't get inside but admired the building from the exterior.

Close to Parc des Bastions, large theatre with very good acoustic qualities. The Season program is very good with some remarkable performers. The Orchestre de ls Suisse Romande, with many talented musicians provides the music.
