It has become the reference in contemporary theatre in the area thanks to its director Vincent Baudriller. Its programming well outside my comfort zone has taught me to appreciate contemporary theatre and its highly current themes.

The Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne offers an exceptional setting just a stone's throw from Lake Léman, where you can enjoy powerful artistic experiences extended by meetings with the artists, debates and exhibitions, to deepen the links between the works and the issues that run through our society. 

Its programming combines artistic loyalty with internationally renowned artists and a renewed focus on the younger generations of artists, making Vidy both a benchmark institution and a forward-looking place of discovery. 

Making the performing arts known and loved is one of the Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne's vocations. Behind-the-scenes guided tours, shows for children aged 4 and over, and even a babysitting service to enable parents to come to the theater more often are just some of the services on offer.
