• Cabaret Canaille at the Théâtre Michel

(Until March 24th, 2024)
Flirty frivolity effervesces with typical Parisian flair beyond the doors of the Théâtre Michel past sunset… ooh la la! For just 3 more dates this March, the rip-roaring riots of the Cabaret Canaille will be gracing the stage of this Parisian theatre. Glamour, humour, and glitter explode with the charm of the 20s up until 40s-era splendour in this whimsical revue show, which has perfected the French art of effeuillage — a more delicate variation of the English ‘strip-tease’. Tasteful and tasty all at once, the Cabaret Canaille is certainly not to be missed! Come and witness it before it curtain drops for the final time…

• Tribute to Ballets Russes by the Ballet Preljocaj at the Royal Opera of Versailles

(Until April 4th, 2024)
Angelin Preljocaj invites you to enjoy a ballet triptych housed in one of the finest venues in all of France. Appropriately decked out in lavish gold and detailed trim, the Royal Opera of Versailles is a must-see for anyone on a Parisian excursion. Why not stop by to enjoy a world-class ballet performance too? Three separate pieces — Annonciation, Torpeur, and finally Noces — promise to transport spectators into an intimate and artistic world. A tribute to the beloved choreography company the Ballets Russes, these works encapsulate the inspiring nature of this fantastic institution for dancers everywhere, from the 20th century right up until present day. An offer in Versailles that you simply can’t refuse!

Little Women, a classic theatre piece at the Théâtre Le Ranelagh (March 30th, 2024)

A captivating theatrical adaptation of a literary classic takes to the small stage this spring — Louisa May Alcott’s cult-classic Little Women receives a thespian glow-up as the Théâtre Le Ranelagh invites you to step back into 19th-century Massachusetts! The story of the four incredible March sisters is transposed to the stage with immaculate grace and nuance. Familial ties, sisterly bonds, and the quest for identity are explored in this beloved story that has stood the test of time. Stop by and fall in love with these Little Women all over again!

Despite being a French-language production, Theatre in Paris offers special English surtitling options for every Friday performance at 8:30 p.m. If your group has 10 or more people, the theatre can also offer surtitling on other days.

In Extenso, Danses en Nouvelles… by Hervé Robbe, a contemporary dance piece at the Chaillot National Dance Theatre (Until March 22nd, 2024)

A gem hidden in plain sight, the Chaillot National Dance Theatre sits amidst the hum and bustle of Paris’s busy Trocadero Esplanade. This March, it offers you two final performances of choreographer Hervé Robbe’s exceptional contemporary dance spectacle: In Extenso, Danses en Nouvelles. A triumph of modern choreography, this show offers three separate dance pieces: Danse de 4, set to music by Charles Ives and Jérôme Combier, propels a mixed quartet into a square space, generating a highly ritualised and almost warlike physical expressiveness. Danse de 16 amplifies this energy in an extended, rounded space, and the finale Deers, Robbe’s most recent creation, focuses on a duo whose strange bonds reveal themselves amid ghostly presences.
