Fodor's Review

The barrel-vaulted Lyon Opera, a reincarnation of a moribund 1831 building, was designed by star French architect Jean Nouvel and built in the early 1990s. It incorporates a columned exterior, soaring glass vaulting, neoclassical public spaces, and an all-black interior. High above, looking out between the heroic statues lined up along the parapet, is a small but excellent restaurant, Les Muses de l'Opéra.
