This auditorium was inaugurated in May 1993 to hold the Rencontres Musicales d'Evian. The Grange au lac integrates seamlessly into its environment thanks to the forest of larch trees from the Hotel Ermitage domain that overlooks the Hotel Royal.
Midway between the traditional barn and a Russian datcha house, it is entirely built with wood—red cedar and Jura pine that time has slowly given a patina to. It can hold 1,200 spectators and 200 musicians and enjoys exceptionally good acoustic qualities. The design of this hall is exceptional. It was born of the friendship between the excellent cellist Mstislav Rostropovitch and Antoine Riboud, Danone CEO, and was entrusted to architect Patrick Bouchain, who was assisted by BAOS Services.
