La Seine musicale: the egg with a thousand facets
Greater Paris’ newest music centre, designed by architects Jean de Gastines
and Shigeru Ban (designers of the Centre Pompidou-Metz), is a 6,000-seat hall, topped with a distinctive glass “egg,” that marks the culmination of the renovation of the Île Seguin.
A venue for both orchestra and pop concerts, La Seine Musicale offers an eclectic program: Bob Dylan and the Insula Orchestra conducted by Laurence Equilbey performed for the opening, while the BBC National Orchestra, the musical West Side Story, and countertenor Philippe Jaroussky are all upcoming acts.
Admission: from €5.
