Once upon a time

The Comédie-Française is an institution of rare longevity. Founded more than three centuries ago, the only time it came close to disappearing was during a short period of the revolutionary troubles. It therefore has the particular quality of sustaining, over a long time, an activity that is essentially ephemeral. Marked by the seal of powerfrom its beginnings, the chronology of its own history often intersects with that of national history.

1670

chrono02_1670

In Paris, three rival theatre groups co-exist: the Marais troupe, the Hôtel de Bourgogne troupe, and the Palais-Royal troupe led by Molière.

1673

chrono03_1673

After Molière’s death, upon royal decree, the Marais actors and Molière’s actors combine to form a new troupe that takes up residence at the Hôtel Guénégaud on the Rue Mazarine.

1680

chrono04_1680-10-21

The death of La Thorillière, leader of the Hôtel de Bourgogne troupe, the last rival in Paris to Molière’s troupe, brings about a final merger.
On 18 August, an order from the King, dispatched from Charleville, instructs the last two troupes of French actors in Paris to operate henceforth as a single company.
On 25 August, the actors of the Hôtel de Bourgogne and those of the Hôtel Guénégaud – those formerly of Molière’s troupe, led by La Grange – give their first joint performance.
On 21 October, a decree signed in Versailles, consecrates the creation of a single troupe composed of twenty-seven actors and actresses chosen by the King for their excellence, with the aim of “making the performance of comedies more perfect.” This single troupe, the Comédiens-Français, enjoys a monopoly over performances in French, in Paris and its outlying areas. Its repertoire includes Corneille, Molière and Racine, but also Rotrou and Scarron.

1681

chrono05_1681-01-05

On 5 January, in keeping with the ancient traditions of theatre companies, the Comédiens-Français bind themselves together through an act of association that thereafter will never be called into question. The newly composed troupe includes famous actors such as Armande Béjart, Catherine De Brie, La Grange, Hubert, Du Croisy, Baron, Jeanne Beauval, Mademoiselle Champmeslé, Racine’s favourite actress, and Poisson, the creator of the character Crispin. Like those that came before them, the actors live by sharing the takings of their shows.

1682

chrono06_1682-08-24

On 24 August, the troupe is awarded a royal pension of 12,000 livres. It therefore enjoys the benefits of royal protection, but in return is more strictly subjected to royal whims and the interferences of royal emissaries. The troupe’s motto Simul et singulis (“be together and be oneself”) and the image of the buzzing beehive are struck on the attendance chip used during its assemblies. The privileged status of the “Comédiens du Roy” (King’s actors) is often challenged by the rival troupes, the Théâtre de la Foire and especially the Comédiens-Italiens. It is in opposition to the latter that the name of Comédie-Française comes to be widely adapted.

1687

chrono07_1687-06-20

The actors are ordered to leave their theatre, the Hôtel Guénégaud, whose proximity to the new Collège des Quatre-Nations (today the Institut de France on Quai de Conti) is a source of alarm to ecclesiastics.

1689

chrono08_1689

After a period of homelessness, the troupe takes up residence in the Rue des Fossés-Saint-Germain (no. 14 of the present Rue de l’Ancienne-Comédie). On 18 April, the theatre built by the architect Francois d’Orbay opens its doors. The repertoire features the actor-authors Champmeslé, Dancourt and Poisson, in the company of Dufresny, Regnard and Crébillon, among others. Despite a number of successes, the troupe struggles during these years of crisis at the end of Louis XIV’s reign.

1716

chrono09_1716

The Regency period, marked by a return to luxury and pleasure, forces the Comédiens-Français to invoke their monopoly to keep up with the reformed Comédiens-Italiens and the prosperous Théâtre de la Foire. The renewed company makes additions to its repertoire: the first tragedies of Voltaire, the works of Destouches, Gresset, Piron, Fagan and Nivelle de La Chaussee, creator of a new dramatic genre, the “tearful comedy”. To compete with the Comédiens-Italiens, some of Marivaux’s comedies are admitted into the Repertoire. The actors of the time are named Mademoiselle Duclos, Mademoiselle Dangeville, Adrienne Lecouvreur; followed, in the middle of the century, by Mesdemoiselles Clairon, Gaussin, Vestris, and the actors Le Kain, Préville and Molé.

1756-1759

chrono10_1756-1759

Placed under the authority of the Premiers gentilshommes de la Chambre, Louis XV’s emissaries tasked with applying the new regulations introduced in 1757 and 1766 after the royal court covered their debts, the Comédiens-Français develop their theatre by building small boxes, which bring in a lot of income, and, with the support of Voltaire, rid the stage of the seats reserved for privileged spectators. Stagings, sets, costumes and acting styles evolve under the influence of Le Kain and Mademoiselle Clairon towards more naturalness and realism.

1762-1765

chrono11_1762-1765

The troupe clashes with the Church during the Crébillon affair – a funeral service in memory of the tragic poet commissioned by the “excommunicated” actors, drawing the wrath of the Archbishop of Paris. The royal authorities also intervene in the Dubois affair, which ends with the incarceration of the Comédiens – those who refused to perform with their dishonest but highly protected comrade – and the withdrawal of Mademoiselle Clairon.

1770

chrono12_1770

The actors leave their old theatre and install themselves temporarily in the “Salle des Machines” of the Tuileries Palace. Larive, Dazincourt, Fleury and Mademoiselle Contat enjoy their first public successes.

1775

chrono13_1775

Premiere of Beaumarchais’ Barber of Seville with Préville in the role of Figaro.

1778

chrono14_1778

Apotheosis of Voltaire: his bust is crowned on the stage in the presence of the author.

1782

chrono15_1782

La troupe inaugurates its new theatre on the Faubourg-Saint-Germain (the present-day Odéon), built for it by the architects Peyre and de Wailly. Seating is introduced in the stalls.

1784

chrono16_1784

Triumphant and tempestuous premiere of Beaumarchais’ Marriage of Figaro, a comedy heralding the revolutionary spirit.

1789

chrono17_1789

In the wake of the political events, the Comédie-Française takes on the name of Théâtre de la Nation. The Revolution grants actors civil rights that had been denied to them despite Louis XIII’s decree in 1641, but it also puts an end to the Comédie-Française’s special status. The royal pension is abolished, and the decrees of 1790 and 1791 end its monopoly over the French repertoire. During this period, the Comédie-Française is exposed to all kinds of dangers, including the dissidence of a group of “republican” actors who split from the troupe: led by Talma, they take up residence in a theatre known as the Théâtre de la République, recently built by Victor Louis on the Rue de Richelieu.

1793

chrono18_1793

On 3 September, the patriotism of the “monarchist” actors having been questioned by their repertoire choices, the Committee of Public Safety ordered the closing of their theatre at the Odéon, their arrest and the seizure of their records. The devotion of an obscure actor, Charles Labussière, an employee of the Committee of Public Safety, saves them from the guillotine. They regain their liberty with fall of Robespierre, but ruined and without a theatre, the Comédiens disperse to join short-lived troupes in Paris and the provinces.

1799

chrono19_1799

The political storm having abated, the troupe is reunited at the instigation of the writer François de Neufchâteau, who has become Minister of the Interior and then a member of the Directory.
The Government grants the Théâtre Français de la République on Rue de Richelieu to the Société des Comédiens-Français. On 30 May, the new Comédie-Française opens its doors, on 11 Prairial Year VI. Napoleon becomes the protector of the Comédie-Francaise.

1804

chrono20_1804

On 17 April, the Comédiens-Français sign a new founding act as a society.

1812

chrono21_1812

On 15 October, the Moscow decree, signed by Napoleon, ratifies and completes the established regulations. Dominated by Talma, the new members, including Mademoiselle George and Mademoiselle Duchesnois, vie for the audience’s favours in tried and trusted classical plays that outshine the mediocre contemporary repertoire.

1826

chrono22_1826

The death of Talma deprives the troupe of its main star. In crisis, the Repertoire is willing to admit the authors of the new romantic school.

1830

chrono23_1830

Under the stewardship of government commissioner Baron Taylor, Alexandre Dumas, Alfred de Vigny and Victor Hugo impose a new genre on the Repertoire, the romantic drama, culminating with the battle of Hernani on 25 February 1830, in a period of modernisation for acting, staging and set design.

1843

Victor Hugo’s Burgraves is a failure. Classical tragedy comes back into fashion, masterfully served by an exceptional tragedienne, Rachel, a genuine star in a renewed troupe.

Musset enters the Repertoire with A caprice.

1849

Henry Becque’s Les Corbeaux (The Crows) introduces naturalism to the Repertoire.
Mounet-Sully triumphs in Oedipus King, then in Hamlet, Perrin’s last staging before his death.

1885-1913

The twenty-eight years of the Claretie administration are characterised by financial difficulties, a tragic troupe that is more brilliant than the comic troupe, and a contemporary repertoire dominated by the comedy of manners (Hervieu, Brieux, Lavedan, Donnay, Porto-Riche, Bataille, Mirbeau, de Flers and Caillavet).

1891

chrono33_1891

The controversy surrounding the production of Victorien Sardou’s Thermidor, at the height of the Boulangist crisis, puts the Comédie-Française at the centre of Third Republic political debates. The Repertoire is diversified with the inclusion of Rostand, Jules Renard and Courteline.

During the war, it participates in the performances of the Théâtre aux Armées, organises fund-raising galas and stages patriotic works.
Despite the post-war financial and political crises, Émile Fabre manages to welcome a new generation of dramatists (Jean-Jacques Bernard, Paul Raynal, André Obey) while celebrating the tricentennial of the birth of Molière and the centenary of Romanticism. He introduces foreign authors (d’Annunzio and Ibsen) to the Repertoire, and stages the great repertoire plays: Musset and Balzac.

1940-1946
