The Théâtre Edouard VII is truly a monument to celebrate French and English cooperation and culture. Fascinated by Paris and what it had to offer, the English King Edward VII decided to contribute to Parisian life by opening a performance hall in the early 20th century to highlight both English and French productions. Unlike most playhouses, the venue first opened as a cinema and was shortly after converted into a theatre. The best part about this venue is its amazing location just steps from the Opéra Garnier, hidden in plain sight in a small pedestrian courtyard. You'll even find a statue of King Edouard VII himself right outside the theatre's restaurant terrace.


Throughout the 20th century, many well-known figures in the French theatre world have been in-house directors, and some celebrated French plays once premiered at this location in the heart of the Paris theatre district. Even some famous French actors once performed on this stage and took part in Théâtre Edouard VII's beloved productions, including Gerard Depardieu! Today, under the direction of Bernard Murat, it continues to be an incredibly diverse theatre, that achieves a perfect balance of classical plays and new writing.


Fun Fact

Writer, actor and director Sacha Guitry is the true emblematic figure of this theatre. The walls of the lobby and restaurant are lined with images of of the famous figures that have been a part of the venue's history, many of whose ghosts are said to haunt the theatre's halls, including Orson Welles!
