A new Cour d'honneur ! The 6th in the history of the Festival d'Avignon.
A very beautiful work composed of a primary structure, a new stage and a 1947-seat bleacher in a historic setting: the Palais des papes in Avignon. Months of design and construction !

Before you can settle in and contemplate the starry sky while waiting for the curtain to rise, we invite you to our first visit to the site.

With photos, follow the levelling of the floor, the beautiful wooden stage that will soon be covered in a deep black, and of course the famous crane... Christophe Raynaud de Lage shares with us his logbook of the construction site with new and unique photos every week!

See you every Friday to follow the progress!

It rained that night... and this 4th visit to the site took advantage of it. Between fantasy and reality, colours and shimmering.
