Art deco concert, opera, recital & dance venue with 2 resident orchestras, constructed in 1913. “Theatre of the Champs-Élysées” is a renowned venue in Paris, known for its historical significance and contribution to the arts. Located on Avenue Montaigne, it is one of the most iconic theaters in the city. The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is famous for hosting a wide range of performances, including classical music concerts, opera productions, ballets, and theatrical plays. It is celebrated for its Art Deco architecture and has played a significant role in the cultural life of Paris since its opening in 1913.
The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is one of the most elegant performance venues in Paris. Designed in 1913 by a group of artists (Henry Van de Velde, the Perret brothers, Antoine Bourdelle, Maurice Denis), it was the first Parisian theatre to be entirely built of reinforced concrete, and has perpetuated for the past century a tradition of eclectic programmes of a high standard (opera, recitals, orchestral concerts, dance). Its opening is still vividly remembered for the ‘scandal’ of the premiere of Le Sacre du Printemps, whose impact on the public derived as much from Stravinsky’s music as from Nijinsky’s choreography. The artistic adventure of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées has been distinguished by the presence, for over one hundred years now, of the most prestigious creative figures in the history of music, opera and dance.
