Winds of change
For this year 2018, the city of Nantes announced that the Graslin Theater will open twice more often than last season. Nearly 90 opening dates this year, against only 50 last year.
This change is due to the arrival of a new director, Alain Surrans. This new director is bringing new life to the Graslin Theater, including video broadcasts of outdoor operas and meditations for children.
In addition to the lyrical program, you will be able to attend theater’s performances, live show, dance, classical music, and much more.
The Graslin Theater is now part of the Angers Nantes Opera joint syndicate, which aims to promote lyrical art to all audiences.
