The World's Greatest Music
All this week the Full Works Concert celebrates the very best French music. But before we're enveloped in the rich sounds of Ravel, Debussy and Faure, let's take a tour of France's most spectacular opera houses and concert venues.
The Toulon Opéra, inaugurated in 1862, is the second-largest opera house in France and one of the country's national historic monuments. It stages around eight operas each season and tours to Avignon, Nice and Marseille. The canvas on the ceiling was painted by Duveau, who also created the ceiling of the Grand Salon of the Imperial Apartments in the Napoleon Wing of the Louvre.
