Highlights: An Evening with Al Pacino

Al Pacino takes Paris by storm for one exceptional evening on April 25, 2023! The actor has decided to take to the prestigious Salle Pleyel to share his extraordinary life with the Parisian public, which he has entirely devoted to theatre and cinema. Gracing our screens with a career spanning over forty films, Al Pacino has created and embodied the most beloved and well-known characters known to cinema. The actor of Scarface, Serpico, Heat, Donnie Brasco, and the Godfather trilogy, is no stranger to critical acclaim: having won an Oscar, Golden Globe, Tony Award, and Emmy Award, he is a Grammy shy of becoming a legendary EGOT winner. In recent years, he has crossed paths with two other titans of cinema, with whom he had strangely never worked: Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) and Martin Scorsese (The Irishman).

Despite his slew of awards and accolades, Al Pacino still proves sensitive to the truest recognition a performer can receive – the applause of their captivated audience. On the date of his birthday, April 25th, join the French public in offering him the most beautiful birthday gift of all – a rousing round of applause!

History and Fun Facts about the Salle Pleyel

From Classical music and jazz, to French chanson and even electronic music… music, in all of its varied forms, converge upon the stage of the legendary Salle Pleyel! The scores of yesteryear haunt this storied venue – its stage has been home to some of history’s finest musical creations, including Gabriel Fauré’s Trio for piano and strings, Maurice Ravel’s Concerto in G, and great contemporary French composer Pierre Boulez’s Notations I-IV...

From the 1950s onwards, some of the world’s finest jazzmen also began to perform and record live albums in its hall. Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Oscar Peterson, Count Basie, and Julian “Cannonball” Addeley are just some of the famous faces that have graced the Salle Pleyel. Today, classical music, jazz, and French chanson are honoured – and electronic music is not left out by any means! In fact, it is at this exact famous venue that the two Frenchmen heading the electro music group The Blaze have made their mark. A centre of creativity and dynamism that has remained vibrant throughout the ages!

It is named after Ignace Pleyel, founder of the famed piano factory in 1807. The Salle Pleyel was built in 1927 at the request of Gustave Lyon, director of the factory, and the construction was led by architects Jacques-Marcel Auburtin, André Granet and Jean-Baptiste Mathon. Recognized from its Art Deco style, the beautiful hall offers fantastic views of the stage for its spectators, but it is most applauded for its exquisite acoustics. The hall now houses up to 2,000 spectators, spread out and seated on a parterre and two balconies. The evenings are memorable and always host an incredible roster of artists, who truly enjoy performing at this historic theatre.

Once you return from your Parisian getaway, tell your friends that during your stay in Paris you visited the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, and that you saw a concert at the Salle Pleyel... any fan of theatre is sure to be amazed.

We told you! It is a must-see in Paris... this venue’s legacy precedes it!
