Soirée Suds - Théâtre Antique
Magnificently restored, a beauty and an amazing acoustic, the Théâtre Antique shelters 2000 seats and 500 seats in the orchestra pit to dance under the stars, or to settle the closest way possible to the artists. Each Soirée Suds offers two concerts that are sublimated by the magic that the site releases... with internationally renowned musical formations, or ones that France and Europe are discovering.
