The Toulon Opera (L'opéra de Toulon), inaugurated on 1 October 1862, is the second-largest opera house in France, after the Palais Garnier in Paris, although it opened thirteen years before the Garnier. The inaugural performance was Les Mousquetaires de la reine, a comic opera by Fromental Halévy, followed a few days later by La Juive, Halévy's most famous opera. Today, the opera house is one of the country's national historic monuments.

The Toulon Opera House was one of a wave of lyric opera houses built in France and Europe in the middle of the 19th century, and it represented the exuberant style of the Second Empire. Its construction began on 5 March 1860, two years before the start of construction of the Palais Garnier. The designer was Léon Feuchéres, who had renovated the Marseille Opera House and built the opera house in Avignon. He died in 1860, and the work was finished by Paris architects Charpentier, pére et fils.
