    Projects & Challenges

    Deeply rooted in its time, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées wishes to integrate into its program the challenges of a changing world. Join our Projects & Challenges to strengthen your social, environmental, and cultural impact! More than a financial contribution, you bring culture at the heart of our society and thus become actors of tomorrow's stage.


    True to its reputation as an avant-garde theater, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées endeavour to encourage artistic creativity, support young talent and contribute to the influence of music and the performing arts.
    Throughout its history, the Theatre has welcomed creation from Stravinsky's Sacre du Printemps to the recent Point d'orgue, an opera by Thierry Escaich, and Animation, a new ballet by Crystal Pite.Thanks to co-productions, the Theatre shares its rich and eclectic programme each season. In 2022-2023, the Theatre took Dialogues des Carmélites to San Francisco Opera, La Vie Parisienne to the Royal Opera of Wallonie in Liège, La Somnambule to the Semperoper Dresden, Les Noces de Figaro to the Los Angeles Opera, Giulio Cesare in Egitto to Oper Leizig...

    The creation of the American Friends of the TCE aims to support co-productions on the other side of the Atlantic and to encourage international cultural exchanges.



    The TCE is a place of life, encounters, and discovery, open to all, that aim to reinforce social cohesion and civic solidarity.

    Each season, 20,000 young people benefit from programs designed for them. Every year, nearly 10,000 tickets are purchased at the youth rate and the Theatre has more than 400 memberships for young people under 26.

    Three “Ambassador Program” evenings for Young Patrons took place in season 2022-2023. By becoming Ambassadors, they can share their passion with young people who are not initiated to music, opera, and dance and who will be invited by the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.

    Convinced that it is important to introduce children to music from an early age, the TCE presents a participatory opera each season and welcomes more than 15,000 students thanks to the support of its patrons. This year, they were able to discover Une Cenerentola, from Rossini.



    During the Young Audience Participatory Opera, the Theatre works with schools in Paris and the surrounding region (REP and REP+ classes and specialized institutes) to introduce young people to classical music and singing.

    Arkema has partnered with this initiative to invite more than 500 children to the Theatre by setting up singing workshops, visits, and a dedicated program throughout the school year.

    Since the official launch of the accessibility program of the TCE supported by the Engie Foundation, the theatre’s team have set up many new actions for people with disabilities. During the 2022-2023 season, the TCE has put on 6 performances in audio description and 2 performances in LSF (French Language of sign) for the participative opera Une Cenerentola as well as La Périchole and La Bohème. In total, more than 3000 people from charitable organisation in favour of diversity and inclusion were welcomed thanks to specific actions. 


    Digital innovation is transforming every aspect of our daily lives, and the covid crisis has accelerated this process of digital integration by cultural institutions, pushing them to adapt. Tomorrow's spectators have already assimilated digital technology into their way of life, and it is now our institution's turn to bring a renewal through this new channel.

    The Theatre participates in the diversification of audiences by launching TCE LIVE, a channel dedicated to its digital programs. Each season, 5 to 6 opera performances as well as a series of concerts and dance shows are broadcasted to extend access to classical music to audiences that are geographically, socially, or culturally distant.



    The Theatre wants to commit itself in a sustainable way in reflections around its environmental impact to face the new societal challenges. This will require a collective awareness on the part of all the Theatre's teams and artists to invest in a daily eco-responsible approach. These sustainable development criteria are increasingly being incorporated into the development of opera productions.
