The Théâtre du Châtelet opened its doors in 1862, at a time when Paris was in full artistic and cultural swing. From the outset, it hosted a variety of shows, from opera and musicals to dance and theater. It thus contributed to enriching the cultural life of the French capital.

The theater has two main halls: the Grand Salle, which seats around 2,500 spectators, and the Théâtre de la Ville, with a capacity of around 600. These spaces are equipped with the latest audiovisual technologies, guaranteeing an immersive experience for the audience. It has witnessed key moments in the life of the capital, from the Belle Époque to the Roaring Twenties, via periods of war and reconstruction. Its stages have been trodden by such renowned artists as Maurice Ravel, Serge Diaghilev and many others.

The Théâtre du Châtelet also hosted the first performance in France ofIgor Stravinsky 's famous ballet "The Rite of Spring" in 1913, a performance that marked a turning point in the history of music and dance. Today, the Théâtre du Châtelet continues to play a central role in the cultural life of Paris, preserving its heritage while looking to the future.
