History of the Conservatory of Strasbourg
It is indeed this considerable amount of the legacy Apffel which allowed the municipality to establish a conservatory which also emanated a symphonic orchestra, historically born the second in France after Paris.
In 1922 the Conservatory moved into the building now occupied by the National Theatre of Strasbourg. It shared the building with the TNS until 1995, when it moved into two temporary accommodations in the Laiterie (fr:La Laiterie) and at 4, rue Brûlée, until a custom-built centre was completed in the new Rivétoile development, the Cité de la Musique et de la danse, which was inaugurated in 2006.
