English Capitole de Toulouse

The Capitole (French for "capitol") is the heart of the municipal administration of the French city of Toulouse and its city hall.

It is supposedly on the spot that St Saturninus was martyred. The bishop of Toulouse is said to have been tied to the legs of a bull, which was driven down the steps of the town's capitol, causing his head to be dashed open.The Capitouls (governing magistrates) of Toulouse embarked on the construction of the original building in 1190 to provide a seat for the government of a province growing in wealth and influence. The name "Capitole" referred not only to the Roman Capitol but also to the capitulum, which was the chapter of the governing magistrates. It was a centre of contention during the 1562 Toulouse Riots, with Huguenot forces holding it with captured cannon.

In the 20th century, the structures surrounding the vast (2 ha) Place du Capitole were redesigned, but the current façade, 135 m long and built of the characteristic pink brick in Neoclassical style, dates from 1750, built according to plans by Guillaume Cammas. The eight columns represent the original eight capitouls. In 1873, Eugène Viollet-le-Duc built a bell tower typical of the style of northern France on top of the donjon of the building. It was in this donjon that Jean Calas, a Protestant victim of a religiously-biased trial, was interrogated. Only the Henri IV courtyard and gate survive from the original medieval buildings. It was in this courtyard that the Duke de Montmorency was decapitated after his rebellion against Cardinal Richelieu. A thorough redesign of the Place du Capitole in 1995 reserved the space for pedestrians. Some of the interior of the Capitole can be traced back to the 16th century. Today the Capitole houses the city hall, as well as the Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse opera company and the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse. The Salle des Illustres contains 19th century works of art.

German Kapitol (Toulouse)

Das Kapitol (Rathaus) ist ein Gebäude in der französischen Stadt Toulouse, das sowohl das Rathaus als auch ein Theater beherbergt. Das Gebäude befindet sich auf der Place du Capitole im Herzen von Toulouse.

Bereits im Jahre 1190 wurde an dieser Stelle ein Gebäude für den Stadtrat, die Capitouls, errichtet. Von diesen und dem römischen Kapitol leitet sich der Name des Gebäudes ab. Seitdem befand sich das städtische Verwaltungsgebäude von Toulouse immer an dieser Stelle. Früher war der Komplex größer, mit über die Jahrhunderte gewachsenen Sälen und Nebengebäuden entsprechend dem jeweiligen Bedarf. Im 20. Jahrhundert wurden die Gebäude an dem 2 ha großen Platz neu gestaltet. Die 135 m breite neoklassizistische Fassade aus charakteristischen rosa Ziegeln stammt von 1760 nach einem Entwurf von Guillaume Cammas. Daneben gibt es nur noch den Tour des Archives aus dem 16. Jahrhundert und die Galerien des Cour Henri IV. aus dem 17. Jahrhundert. Teile der Inneneinrichtung stammen aus dem 16. Jahrhundert. Das Kapitol stand im Zentrum der Auseinandersetzungen während der Hugenottenaufstände 1562 in Toulouse.

Théâtre du Capitole

The Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse is an opera house within the main administration buildings, the Capitole, of the city of Toulouse in south-west France. It houses an opera company, ballet company and symphony orchestra, Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse.

The first performance space, a salle du jeu de spectacle, was created in the building in 1736 by Guillaume Cammas. Following a period of neglect, the current space was created during the rebuild of 1818. The theatre suffered fire damage in 1917 but was restored in 1923. The front of house areas were modernised in 1996. The current capacity is 1156 seats.

Michel Plasson was responsible for the artistic direction of the company from 1973. He was followed by Jacques Doucet in 1981, by Nicolas Joel in 1991, and by Frédéric Chambert in 2009, after Joel's move to the Opéra national de Paris. Chambert's first season was marked by the use of alternate spaces while the theatre was renovated, and the theatre was re-opened for the beginning of the 2010–11 season.

The opera company is a member of the Réunion des Opéras de France.
