This is to say if the show was eagerly awaited.

"Lyon born of the Light", huge sound and light show, which begins this Friday evening in Saint-Jean cathedral is already sold out!

The 41 performances will be sold out, we learned from the organizer.

In total, 20,000 places have been reserved.

5,000 people are on the waiting list.

The show, signed Damien Fontaine, an ace of the Festival of Lights, will be performed twice a day until November 11.

It was initially to be held in the fall of 2020, but the organizers had been forced to postpone it for a year due to health constraints linked to the coronavirus epidemic.

The show will immerse the audience in the history of the first Christian martyrs.

About a hundred amateur actors will take part.

“The DNA of the project is the story of the city that is told,” Damien Fontaine explained to

20 Minutes

last year.

I didn't want to write a history book, nor a catechism book.
