The legendary theatres of our district
Published on 2 May 2022 in Entertainment
While staying at the Hotel Les Plumes, you will experience one of the most culturally intense districts of Paris. The 9tharrondissement is known for its wealth of performance halls and theatres, many of which have become legendary. Here we present some of them.
Venues that have gone down in history
Let's start with the Palais Garnier. With its neo-classical facade, its sumptuous gilding and the ceiling frescoes of its great hall painted by Marc Chagall, the Opéra Garnier is an essential place in Parisian cultural life. You can attend a ballet there or simply take advantage of the thematic visits that take you behind the scenes. Not far from there, the Folies Bergères also evokes the intense celebratory spirit of the 19th century. This cabaret inspired Manet and Maupassant, and hosted performances by Colette, Joséphine Baker, and Charles Trenet, and in more recent years Dalida and Vanessa Paradis. Book an evening to catch the latest shows such as Al Capone with Roberto Alagna.
Theatre and music
Just a few steps from your Hotel Les Plumes, you’ll find plenty of options to fill your evenings. Why not choose the essential Olympia? On this stage, Brel, Piaf, Gréco, Ella Fitzgerald, and Louis Armstrong, among many others, have performed... This season, you can admire Camélia Jordana, McFly and Carlito, Beach House and Foreigner. If you enjoy theatre, take the opportunity during your stay to discover the gilded splendour of the Italian room of the Théâtre de l'Athénée, also renowned for its exceptional acoustics. In fact, this district boasts no fewer than a dozen theatres, including the Mogador with its musicals and the magnificent Théâtre Edouard VII, which welcomes the top comedians.
Enjoy the cultural life of the 9th arrondissement and visit one or more of its legendary venues. Each one upholds the cultural and festive tradition of the district...
