In a situation of disability

SENSORY DISABILITIES


Deaf and hearing-impaired people

  • Smart glasses

FOR WHO ?

The smart glasses are designed for the deaf and hearing-impaired, as well as the English-speaking audience.

To make the shows more accessible, the Comédie-Française can provide smart glasses for all the Salle Richelieu performances, covering:

  • French Sign Language
  • Adapted Subtitles
  • French
  • English

HOW DOES IT WORK ?

Smart glasses allow the viewer to project content in the selected language directly on the glass, superimposing it on their field of vision without impacting their view of the stage. The glasses can be used from any seat of the Salle Richelieu. You may ask for them after or when you book your tickets. We advise you to secure a reservation ahead of time due to the limited number of glasses available.

The smart glasses are provided free of charge.

In collaboration with Panthea

Smart glasses are compatible with vision glasses.

VIGIPIRATE

En raison du renforcement des mesures de sécurité dans le cadre du plan Vigipirate « Urgence attentat », nous vous demandons de vous présenter 30 minutes avant le début de la représentation afin de faciliter le contrôle.

Nous vous rappelons également qu’un seul sac (de type sac à main, petit sac à dos) par personne est admis dans l’enceinte des trois théâtres de la Comédie-Française. Tout spectateur se présentant muni d’autres sacs (sac de courses, bagage) ou objets encombrants, se verra interdire l’entrée des bâtiments.
