La Cité du Théâtre (City of Theatre)

Launched in October 2016 by the French President and the Minister of Culture, the ambition of this major project is for France’s three largest national theatre institutions – the Comédie-Française, the Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe and the Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique – to work together on the site of the restored Ateliers Berthier by 2022-2023.

For the Comédie-Française, the site will hold:

  • two performance spaces, respectively fitted with 600 seats approximately and 250 seats. These adaptable and modern spaces will offer an essential counterpoint, both technically and artistically, to the proscenium stage (Salle Richelieu).
  • a multi-purpose rehearsal room that can be adapted to different rehearsal configurations.
  • storage spaces, technical and artistic facilities, dressing rooms, small workshops and administrative offices, all of which are necessary to manage productions and which will generate constant daily activity.
