Opéra de Lausanne


Opéra de Lausanne

The Lausanne Opera opened in 1871. Today, it is home to many opera performances, ballets, and concerts.

Moving from a theatre to an opera house with the ability to produce its own shows, after almost 150 years, the Lausanne Opera is still meeting the growing demand for operatic performances among its audiences. Since its stage was renovated in 2012, the cultural centre has offered a wide choice of operas each season, from baroque to contemporary works, including work from the romantic repertoire as well as concerts and ballets. With a programme that focuses on vocal quality and intriguing productions, the Lausanne Opera welcomes more than 45,000 audience members per year with an international reach.
