A little history

Saison 21-22

Michel Franck Editorial

"Dans ces temps troublés, savoir conserver ses fondamentaux est une nécessité absolue à laquelle je me suis particulièrement attaché en préparant cette nouvelle saison : un savant mélange de genres (lyrique, symphonique, récital, danse), savant mélange d’œuvres connues (Requiem, L’Or du Rhin, Le Messie, Passion) et de découvertes (Hulda, Messe de Clovis, Ariane et Bacchus… ), savant mélange d’artistes là aussi renommés (Diana Damrau, Philippe Jaroussky, Grigory Sokolov, Angelin Preljocaj...) et de jeunes artistes à découvrir...

Hier et aujourd'hui

From yesterday to today


The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is one of the most elegant performance venues in Paris. Designed in 1913 by a group of artists (Henry Van de Velde, the Perret brothers, Antoine Bourdelle, Maurice Denis), it was the first Parisian theatre to be entirely built of reinforced concrete, and has perpetuated for the past century a tradition of eclectic programmes of a high standard (opera, recitals, orchestral concerts, dance). Its opening is still vividly remembered for the ‘scandal’ of the premiere of Le Sacre du Printemps, whose impact on the public derived as much from Stravinsky’s music as from Nijinsky’s choreography. The artistic adventure of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées has been distinguished by the presence, for over one hundred years now, of the most prestigious creative figures in the history of music, opera and dance.
