Purchasing tickets and season tickets for the 2024-2025 season

  • Cartes Comédie-Française (season tickets) and tickets at Cartes Comédie-Francaise rates

Cartes (season tickets) and tickets sold at Cartes rates may be purchased on the Comédie-Française website or by phone via the Comédie-Française’s booking department (+33 (0)1 44 58 15 15 Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm).

The special rates applying to Cartes Comédie-Française holders are subject to quotas. Bookings are processed within a specific number of seats to which these rates apply.

The Comédie-Française is committed to being environment-friendly. In order to reduce our environmental impact, we no longer automatically send out the Carte Comédie-Française. If you do wish to receive it, please go to the Salle Richelieu or Vieux-Colombier box office.
