Cloakroom: At a show, it is hard to know what to do with your jacket, coat or bag, especially when applauding. Luckily, for shows in the main auditorium, a cloakroom is available free of charge on level +1. 
NB: the cloakroom is accessible via the escalators but not via the lifts.

Cushions: At the Opéra de Lyon, your comfort, particularly during the show, is important to us. With this in mind, we have put a cushion at your disposal, free of charge, for every show. All you have to do is stop by the cloakroom and show us some ID. 
Taxis: Because we don’t want you to worry about getting home easily after the show, you can pre-book a taxi before the show. Just contact a member of our team when you arrive at the Opera and they will take care of it. 


Security: How to prepare for your visit to the Opéra de Lyon

At the Opéra de Lyon, your safety is our priority. That’s why we’ve put extra measures in place, in line with the national Vigipirate anti-terrorism plan, to tighten security while ensuring a warm welcome for our visitors.
Additional security checks have been put in place on the peristyle for evening performances, open days and Heritage Days. We request that you present yourself at these checkpoints:
•    without any large bags (i.e. with capacity of more than 10 litres)
•    without suitcases

Our security staff are authorised to take any action they deem necessary, without prior warning.
