The Théâtre des Champs-Elysées is one of most beautiful Parisian theaters. Located Avenue Montaigne, one of the finest avenues in Paris, next to the Eiffel Tower, it was built in 1913 by a group of artists: architects Henry van de Velde and Auguste & Gustave Perret, painter and sculptor Antoine Bourdelle, painter Maurice Denis, and glass cutter René Lalique.

This theater is an outstanding example of Art Déco in Paris. It was designed to break all the architectural rules of that time and to be bold and modern. As North America was introduced in February 1913 to the European experimental styles of Fauvism, Cubism and Futurism during the Armory Show, the early days of the theater were marked by the scandal of the first performance of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring by Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes.

For over 100 years, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées has been welcoming on its stage talented artists from all over the world: directors, orchestras, soloists, singers, dancers… The Théâtre des Champs-Elysées is a pioneer among the classical music venues to offer a wide range of live performances with a calendar combining opera, recitals, symphony concerts, and dance.
