Nuits de Fourvière

Nuits de Fourvière

Late June to early September
The city of Lyon, France, was called "Lugdunum" in Roman times, and the city's old Roman theater, the ThÉâtre Romain de FourviÅre, is still used for public performances. This large outdoor arena seats 3,000 people and is the principal venue in a summer festival known as the Nuits de FourviÅre, or Nights of FourviÅre. This festival includes music, ballet, and theater events. Musical performances range from opera and symphonic music, to world and pop music. The Nuits de FourviÅre begins in June and ends in September, though most of the performances take place in July.
