Célestins Theatre

Théâtre des Célestins, Lyon 2

Built in the late eighteenth century on land which formerly belonged to the Célestins convent, this theatre was inaugurated in 1792. It was destroyed by fire in 1871 and rebuilt by Gaspard André, who rebuilt it again in the Italian style after a second fire in 1880-1881.
