Story

In 2017, countertenor Philippe Jarrousky and Hungarian soprano Emőke Baráth recorded "La Storia Di Orfeo", exploring the myth of Orpheus through versions of the works of three composers: Monteverdi, Sartorio and Rossi. They come together at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées to breathe life into this wonderful repertoire.
The young Belgian coloratura soprano Jodie Devos will perform the most famous arias of Bach and Handel. Sonya Yancehva will play the works of the great composers of the early Baroque period, brilliantly performing the arias and melodies of Monteverdi, Caccini or Carissimi.

Inaugurated in April 2, 1913, the structure is quite large comprising of 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 originally constructed to host guests visiting the theatre to watch opera shows and concerts. This was the first theatre in Paris to be built completely from reinforced concrete instead of steel.

 

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.
