    The Opera Confluence is a simple assembly. It incorporates recycled scenographic equipment, designs a removable shell and is complete with technical equipment and annexes according to its needs . The set creates a unique combination, an original atmosphere.

    The Opera Confluence reveals itself from the inside. In contrast with the inert metal cladding facade, the wood is multiplied into structural elements, panels and acoustic elements . By its smell, its color, its timbre and its touch, the wood creates a protective and warm environment. The goal is achieved by the story that the project was born from the meeting of actors and common ambitions.

    The life and identity of the ephemeral room will continue to evolve over its facilities .

    The Opera Confluence consists of combinable elements, recycled or new. Although adjusted to each other, these elements, both technical, structural and scenographic, remain independent and modular. Designed and optimized for lyrical performances, the room can, by its dimensions, accommodate a multitude of functions. The disassembly and reassembly of the room will be the next objective of the project . It will confirm the design and implementation of caissons, structural assemblies and finishing treatments.
