The Grand Théâtre de Genève which is closed for renovation, will use for two and a half years a temporary wooden structure situated near the United Nations headquarters, and symbolically called Opera Nations. The elements of the structure were before used as Ephemeral Theatre by the Comédie Française in Paris. Yet, the theatre of 700 seats was expanded to accommodate 1100 spectators and an orchestra pit for 70 musicians was added as well. The first work to be performed will be Handel’s Alcina, on 15 February.
