History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Libre
Le Théâtre Libre, previously known as Le Comédia, was built in just six months by the architect Charles Duval in 1858. It experienced an unsteady start and soon declared bankruptcy. However, in 1862 it was transformed into the Eldorado, and became the most famous concert cafe in Paris. It retained its popularity for over 60 years, undergoing various phases of renovations during which its glamorous spirit was reflected through the addition of a metallic canopy entryway.
This renowned venue played an important role in shaping the cultural prowess of the Roaring Twenties, and has hosted many stars, including Mistinguett and Maurice Chevalier, both French actor-singers. In 1932 it was converted into a large cinema, returning to its original role as a theater in 1971. Since this time, the stage has been used for musical performances of all kinds. In recent years, it began to feature many other types of theatrical performances to the great delight of the Parisian public.
