Highlights: Adriana Lecouvreur at Théâtre des Champs-Élysées
Maurizio, Michonnet, Prince de Bouillon, and Princess de Bouillon, the Abbé de Chazeuil, Mademoiselle Jouvenot... Come and discover all the protagonists of the opera Adriana Lecouvreur, performed in concert version on the stage of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.
A concert opera removes the theatrical elements of a traditional opera, and shines a spotlight solely on the music and voices, allowing us to fully immerse and appreciate the talent of today’s musicians.
The voices of Tamara Wilson (soprano) as Adriana, Brian Jagde (tenor) as Maurizio, and Clémentine Margaine (mezzo-soprano) as Princess de Bouillon make this evening unforgettable.

Inaugurated on April 2nd, 1913, the structure is quite large comprising three auditoriums: Théâtre des Champs- Élysées, The Comédie des Champs- Élysées, Studio des Champs- Élysées, and a restaurant. The main theatre which has 1905 seats is Italian styled and originally constructed to host guests visiting the theatre to watch opera shows and concerts.

Over the years the famed theatre has hosted many recognized artists such as the beautiful cabaret dancer Josephine Baker, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, and many other entertainers from our cherished olden day era. In 2005 the main room in the theatre was renovated in order to improve the acoustics, it is confirmed that during a show the sounds are very clear, almost as if you were up close to the stage. Théâtre des Champs- Élysées is one of the most frequently visited monuments in Paris, on an annual basis more than 300,000 people attend programs from contemporary dance and ballet recitals to orchestras, operas, and other concerts.
