Description complète

The Trianon and the Elysée-Montmartre theater: two adjoining theaters, communicating, flexible, transformable for any event, with a capacity of 1000 people each. They are located at 72 and 80 Boulevard Rochechouart, at the foot of the Butte Montmartre.

The Trianon and Elysée-Montmartre theaters, both from the 19th century, but inaugurated 87 years apart. Indeed, the Trianon theater was established in 1894 in the gardens of the Elysée-Montmartre, a popular ballroom opened in 1807.

The Trianon Theater: a burning beginning and a name that evolves over time

It's a theater full of history, which has been hosting for more than 100 years all the lyrical shows, comic operas, revues and chansonniers that Paris has had. The famous Mistinguett made a name for herself there before triumphing at the Cinéma Muet and in well-known revues.

The beginning was particularly hot. Opened in 1894, it was destroyed by fire in 1900 after only 5 years of activity. It was rebuilt in 1902 in a style mixing Napoleon III and classical architecture 1900, the Trianon was designed by the architect Joseph Cassien-Bernard, designer of the Alexandre-III bridge and student of Charles Garnier. Its facade was inspired by the Grand Trianon in Versailles.

A name modulated according to the era

Its original name is "Trianon-Theatre". But it was renamed according to fashion and circumstances. It becomes for a time "Victor-Hugo Theater" (1903), then "Trianon-Lyrique" and finally simply "Trianon". In 1908, it became a branch of the Opéra-Comique specialized in operetta.

In 1936, the Trianon devoted itself to music hall, with artists such as Yvette Guilbert, Marie Dubas, Fréhel or Pierre Dac. Shortly before the Second World War, the cinema took over this beautiful 1,000-seat theatre with two levels of balconies (like the Grand Rex)

In the 1980s, the cinema industry was going through a crisis in attendance: the so-called "popular" cinemas were closing one after the other. The Trianon, which offered adventure and karate films, became a theater again in 1992, under the impulse of Guy Balensi.

The Trianon theater can be transformed according to demand

Restored in 2009, it was reopened to the public in 2010. It has since turned to a varied program: theater, classical or variety concerts with Carla Bruni, Julie Zenatti or Benabar, but also operas, operettas, musicals, show cases, fashion shows, film premieres, various shows or festivals. Since 2003, it has hosted the final auditions of the French TV show Nouvelle Star. The Wriggles also recorded a show there on September 23, 2005. The Trianon has also welcomed the singer Rihanna in November 2012 during her promotional tour 777 Tour to promote her album Unapologetic. On July 26, 2014, another event still rare in France took place there, the final stages of an electronic sports competition: the Nation Wars.

Finally, the Trianon theater can be converted to receive events, like the Elysée-Montmartre

On the first floor is Le Petit Trianon, a café-restaurant designed from the beginning of the establishment in the Art Deco style and back in business since May 2011 after twenty years of closure.

L'Élysée-Montmartre, twin and complementary venue

The Élysée-Montmartre is a Parisian theater located at 72 boulevard Marguerite-de-Rochechouart, in the heart of the Montmartre district and opened in 1807.

The Élysée-Montmartre is also a source of inspiration for painters and artists of the Butte (Toulouse-Lautrec painted many pictures there). The room was used as a set for Maupassant's Masque and hosted the 100th performance of Zola's L'Assommoir in 1879. It was also used for costume parties such as the Quat'z'Arts ball.

Finally, during the Paris Commune (1870-71), the hall hosted one of the main revolutionary clubs (places of discussion where "utopians and enraged" remade the world).

In 1894, the garden of the Elysée-Montmartre was removed to make way for the Trianon-Concert. The ballroom remained as it was. It is from 1897 that the 2 theaters begin their separate life. The Élysée-Montmartre is reorganized by its new owner: the ballroom is separated from the caf'-conc. On one side, the singing tours, the reviews and other poet-singers, and on the other, the dance and skating.

Closed in 2011 due to a fire, the Elysée-Montmartre venue was bought in 2014 by Julien Labrousse and his partner Abel Nahmias, who also own the neighboring Théâtre du Trianon. The Elysée-Montmartre and the Théâtre du Trianon continue their separate lives, again under the same owner. The reopening of the Elysee-Montmartre has September 15, 2016 after major work (8 million euros of investment).

The Elysée-Montmartre: first a ballroom

At its opening in 1807 is the place to be: the naturalist quadrille, or cancan, performed in particular by Valentin le Désossé or Grille d'Égout. This dance is also adopted in October 1889 by the Moulin Rouge at its opening, with La Goulue, who will become one of the most famous dancers of cabaret.

The establishment was composed of three buildings and a large garden. Émile Zola describes its façade in his novel L'Assommoir.

The Elysée-Montmartre today

It is a room built in the tradition of the ballrooms of yesteryear, with a solid oak floor with worked patterns. Its Eiffel-inspired metal structure and regular columns harmonize with the waxed floor. To complete this ornament designed by a film decorator, the walls are decorated in light, creamy tones.

A 70 m2 balcony overlooks the room, echoing the art nouveau rhythm of the metalwork of the grand staircase. It serves an indoor smoking room. Just below you will find the main bar, with a 10-meter long counter, all in gilded bronze, with worked angles and contemporary lines. A second bar is at your disposal, near the stage and the dance floor.

The room of the Elysée-Montmartre hosts many concerts and is also rented to companies or for private use (various events). It is modular and adaptable to the request. Parisian, without being flashy or too stuffy, the decorations of the Elysée-Montmartre will serve as a showcase for your events.

Trianon and Elysée-Montmartre Theaters: 2 entities, one objective

They each offer spaces that can accommodate events of up to 1000 people, i.e. potentially 2000 participants, in locations that can be adapted to a wide variety of events (shows, exhibitions, corporate seminars, family events, etc.).
