Presentation
Located in the Auch town hall, this 18th-century Italian-style theatre is the only theatre of the period still standing in the entire southwest of France. In 1759, the intendant D’Etigny proposed to build a new town hall. From the beginning, the building was designed to accommodate a theatre. The hall is shaped like a long "U", of which the ends are slightly curved outwards to join the apron of the stage. In the centre of the foliated panels of the first boxes, medallions represent great playwrights: Voltaire, Shakespeare, Molière, Sophocle and others. The figures on the ceiling represent Poetry, Eloquence, Music and Painting. The theatre is still currently used for cultural purposes, and in particular circus arts. Tours are on offer as part of "Laissez-vous conter le Grand Auch".
