Odeon Theatre - Side Arches

The Odéon is one of France's six "national theatres", located in the VIe arrondissement, on the Left Bank of Paris, next to the Luxembourg Garden. It was built in 1779-82 to a Neoclassical design by Charles De Wailly and Marie-Joseph Peyre in order to house the Comédie Française (which preferred to stay at the Théâtre-Français in the Palais Royal). The new theatre was inaugurated by Marie-Antoinette on April 9, 1782. It was there that The Marriage of Figaro was premiered two years later. In 1990, the theater was renamed Théâtre de l'Europe. It is a member theater of the Union of the Theatres of Europe.
