With their double armrests and deep seating, the orchestra and dress circle seats offer considerable comfort. These wooden seats covered with a warm red velvet welcome you to each performance. During the rehearsals, artist like to set there to better understand the acoustics of the room or to evaluate the perception of a staging or a choreographic piece.
Since 1987, when the Theatre was last renovated, these seats have not refurbished. The Theatre has taken care of it, repairing the wear caused by time. Today, by taking part in their renovation, you will feel even more at home.
Les Petites Noces – audiodescribed opera for children
Help us bring audiodescription to young blind people.
Thanks to the audio description system, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées has enabled many blind and partially sighted children and teenagers since the 2015-2016 season to discover the world of performing arts, through participatory operas for young audiences.
This season, young blind and partially sighted people will be able to discover Les Petites Noces, a work adapted in French from Mozart’s Les Noces de Figaro, thanks to headphones provided during the performances. In addition, they will be invited to visit the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées to discover the costumes through touch and to visualize the scenic space using a Braille set plan.
Audio description performance with Accès Culture on February 8 at 5pm.
