For three years, Cygnet Theatre Company has been bringing the best Shakespeare plays to life in Paris, in their original language! And this year is no exception. In the beauty of the Jardin des Arènes de Montmartre, you will get to enjoy Romeo and Juliet and The Tempest. These two plays have been completely reimagined and, performed by a cast of international actors, will bring magic to this beautiful outdoor venue. A summer of Shakespeare you simply can't miss!

Résumé

Romeo and Juliet might be Shakespeare’s most famous play. Who could resist the heart wrenching story of the star-crossed lovers? For this production, Cygnet Theatre Company is putting a twist on the famous love story by transposing it into Alice in Wonderland’s magical world and with a predominantly female cast.

Through music, choreography and an inventive staging, The Tempest will transport you to an enchanting island where the magician Prospero lives with his daughter and servants. Dealing with themes of justice, corruption and love, The Tempest will allow you savour Shakespeare’s iambic pentameters and to be spellbound by its beautiful images.

Jardin des Arènes de Montmartre

25 Rue Chappe, 75018 Paris

Situé au croisement de la rue Gabrielle et de la Rue Chappe et à quelques pas de la basilique du Sacré Cœur, le Jardin des Arènes de Montmartre offre une vue imprenable de la capitale qui saura plaire à tous les amoureux de Paris et tous les curieux.
Ces arènes ont été créées en 1941 par l’association montmartroise Les Petits Poulbots, nommée d’après les dessins de Francisque Poulbot représentant les gamins du quartier. Cette association venait en aide aux enfants en difficulté du quartier. C’est au cœur du quartier agricole de Montmartre, là où poussait auparavant des arbres fruitiers que s’érigent ces arènes. Elles rendent hommage à l’Antiquité et ne sont pas sans rappeler les amphithéâtres grecs. Si ces arènes sont relativement récentes, elles n’en sont pas moins passionnantes !
Le jardin qui accueille les arènes de Montmartre est fermé au public la plupart de l’année et chanceux sont ceux qui peuvent trouver place dans ce théâtre en plein air pour y découvrir une représentation artistique. Depuis les années 1980 de nombreux festivals lyriques, concerts de jazz et représentations théâtrales viennent faire vivre les Arènes de Montmartre. Nichés entre les immeubles parisiens, les arènes parfaitement situées offrent un moment suspendu au cœur de la capitale.
