Just a few steps from our establishment in the 8th arrondissement, the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, one of the capital’s most beautiful venues, stands proudly at 15 Avenue Montaigne. One of the leading French theaters, it was created in 1913 by a group of performers. Its artistic destiny has been fulfilled by nearly a century of presentations by some of the most prestigious entertainers in the history of music, opera and dance.

As a complement to lyric programming, the music hall has just as much to offer: Josephine Baker and Claude Nougaro (among many others) knew glory on this theater stage. The theater is a jewel of twentieth-century architecture and was one of the first buildings of the contemporary architectural heritage to be classified as a Historical Monument; it was the first structure made entirely in reinforced concrete that was designed to hold an audience.

Building on this rich past, the theater is currently preparing for its centennial celebration and for the future by undertaking a full renovation program (acoustical comfort, greater floor space, enhanced security, etc.). This definitely makes 15 Avenue Montaigne an address for you to discover the next time you’re in Paris.
