Théâtre Le Ranelagh

About

The Théâtre du Ranelagh is located in the elegant 16th arrondissement of Paris, in a building which dates back to 1894. Its owner, Louis Mors, was a wealthy car manufacturer with a passion for music. He adored the Flemish Renaissance style, and created the theatre to be his ‘music room’ all in carved oak. Despite its exceptional acoustics, the theatre dedicated almost exclusively to private concerts.

The site was made available to the general public in the 1930s when it began to host art cinema screenings and screenings. Over the years and under various managers, the Théâtre du Ranelagh has opened up to a more eclectic range of performances including music, exhibitions,circus, and more – and the work of many famous artists including Wagner, Debussy, Marcel Carné and Renoir.

Today, the establishment has refocused towards a theatrical and musical programme, highlighting the acoustics of this wonderful venue. During your show, don’t forget to take in the details of this sumptuous theatre, which was classified as a historical monument in 1977.
