Workshops for costume creations, decor assembling, the Cabestans room diving into the machines buried more than 15 meters deep under the stage, a Foyer considered as an antichamber for artist warmup before they come out on the stage to perform. The Rotonde du Glacier, Rotonde des Abonnés and Bassin de la Pythie will finally deliver their well hidden secrets.
