The following year he played Agathon and Aristophane in Plato’s Banquet directed by Jacques Vincey.

In 2011, he became the 521st sociétaire of the Company. Jérôme Deschamps entrusted him with the role of Fontanet in Feydeau’s Un fil à la patte, while he assisted director Catherine Hiegel on the staging of Molière’s The Miser (L'Avare), in which he also played Anselme. Éric Génovèse cast him in Jean-René Lemoine’s Erzuli Dahomey, déesse de l’amour, while Éric Ruf selected him for Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen.

In 2013, Anne Kessler directed him in Guy Zilberstein’s Coupes sombres and in the reading of Shakespeare’s Richard III on France Culture Radio. Clément Hervieu-Léger cast him as Oronte in Molière’s Misanthrope.
