French theatre at its glory. A public institution and the only theatre with its own resident troupe. A theatre established in 1680! We went to see Les Damnés, the most captivating play I have ever seen.

The Comedie Francaise has been around since the 17th .century. It is a state-subsided theatrical troupe. The repertoire is focused on the classics. If your French is not good, don't expect to understand very much. The Comedie Francaise is ;located in downtown Paris.

The Comédie-Française is a gem in France’s cultural crown. Its plays are of the highest quality and the visite historique is a 2-hour walk through its fascinating history. A must-see for those interested in theatre and French cultural history.

What a beautiful space to see live theatre. The Richelieu room is absolutely spectacular and almost any seat is a great seat as the room is not that large. It's like one has stepped back in time. We saw a production of Moliere's Les Fourberies...More

From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
