In the middle of the 18th century, when the curtain of the past was raised, Montpellier was to all a "charming city" and above all, an intellectual city, but it didn't have a theatre.
And yet there was a real thirst for shows and productions! The Duke of Richelieu, governor of the city, entrusted Jacques-Philippe "Maréchal with this project. The theatre was inaugurated on 1st October 1888: an auditorium replete with gold and light, featuring 1,600 seats covered in red velvet. Today, the Montpellier Opera House is a centre for the lyrical arts in France.
