France never will change. You know this joke that a French Corona variant never would have succeeded since the virus would have gone immediately on strike for whatever reason. Now that is is legally possible to open concert halls and opera houses in France, the Opera of Lyon, still occupied by the collective Occupons 69, which gathers intermittent artists and technicians, is forced to cancel the performances scheduled on May 23 and 26. The occupants of the place do not want « reopening without social rights ».

While in other large cities, such as Toulouse or Bordeaux, the occupations of cultural venues have ended with the intervention of the police, in Lyon the municipality excludes this possibility, and the Opera of Lyon and the Lyon institution is therefore unable to offer the impatient public the performances scheduled for this reopening.
