The place

The Carrière de Boulbon is located about 15 km southwest of Avignon. This venue in the middle of nature was used by the Festival for the first time in 1985 for the staging of Mahabharata by Peter Brook. In this former quarry (carrière in French) which is no longer operated today, everything has to be set up in it, from the electricity to the stage, from the boxes to the snack bar. Numbered seats.

Since 2023, the Carrière de Boulbon has been redeveloped to make the site and the public safer, thanks to the support of the Ville de Boulbon.

On performance days, the Carrière de Boulbon opens at 7.30pm and there will be food and drink available. Access to the site will be possible until 9.30pm, with the show starting at 10pm sharp.
Spectators are asked to arrive well in advance, taking into account travel time, parking and access to the site on foot.
