  • The Carrière de Boulbon is located about 15 km southwest of Avignon. This venue in the middle of nature was used by the Festival for the first time in 1985 for the staging of Mahabharata by Peter Brook. In this former quarry (carrière in French) which is no longer operated today, everything has to be set up in it, from the electricity to the stage, from the boxes to the snack bar.

    Numbered seats.
