Le Corum Opera & Conference Centre Montpellier
Le Corum Montpellier is a large, purpose built conference centre/opera house in the centre of town.
One of the city's main objectives has been to provide a high standard of culture and first class tourist facilities; Le Corum's Opera Berlioz/Conference Hall was built as part of this policy.
The Corum is, in fact, the first purpose-built complex in Europe specifically designed to serve both as opera house and conference centre. Its size and remarkable acoustics make it a superb setting for both.
Due to its sophisticated design, it can welcome over 4000 people in relaxed and comfortable conditions.
On a single site, Le Corum Montpellier is, in fact, a combination of three auditoriums (Berlioz seating 2010, Pasteur seating 745, and Einstein seating 318), extensive reception and exhibition areas, committee rooms, etc. It is thus the ideal centre in which to exchange new ideas, or participate in exceptional cultural events.
Designed by architect Claude VASCONI, and situated in the centre of Montpellier, the Corum is an extension to Montpellier's historic centre and its pedestrian and commercial areas.
