Théâtre des Champs-Élysées – France

The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is a Parisian theatre, famous for being the site of the scandal associated with the first performance of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring in 1913. Three of Jean Giraudoux's plays premiered here: Siegfried in 1928, Amphitryon 38 in 1929, and The Enchanted in 1933.In spite of its name, the theatre is not located on Champs-Élysées, but at 15, avenue Montaigne, still in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.Completed in 1913, the venue is one of the few major examples of Art Deco in Paris. It is the work of French architect Auguste Perret, significant as an early landmark of reinforced concrete construction and, at the time, shockingly plain in appearance. The building includes an exterior bas relief by Antoine Bourdelle, a dome by Maurice Denis, paintings by Édouard Vuillard and Jacqueline Marval, and a stage curtain by Xavier Roussel.The building houses two smaller stages, the Comédie des Champs-Élysées theatre on the 3rd floor, and the Studio des Champs-Élysées on the 5th floor.The theatre was founded by journalist and impresario Gabriel Astruc with a view to providing a venue suitable for contemporary music-making, dance and opera, unlike traditional, more conservative institutions such as the Paris Opera. Accordingly, it housed the Ballets Russes for its first season and consequently the world première of what many deem to be the most influential ballet and musical work of the twentieth century: the Rite of Spring. That premiere, on Thursday May 29, 1913, caused one of the most famous classical music riots in history.From 1923 the smaller Comédie stage upstage was the home of Louis Jouvet's long-running medical satire, Dr. Knock, and in late 1924 the theatre also premiered the Ballets suédois production of Francis Picabia's "instantaneist" ballet Relâche, with music by Erik Satie.Nowadays, the theatre shows about three staged opera productions a year, mostly baroque or small-orchestra pieces, in accordance with the moderate size of its stage and orchestra pit. In addition, it houses an important concert season. It is home to two orchestras: the Orchestre National de France and Orchestre Lamoureux, as well as the French base of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Ensemble orchestral de Paris play most of their concerts here too, along with other dance, chamber music, recital and pop events.Although the theatre is a private venture, it is sponsored by the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, which has owned the building since 1970.
