One of Paris’s most beloved classic theaters, Théâtre Édouard VII is a dream venue to behold. Its multi-level seating, broad balconies, and grand stage are luxuriously decorated with red velvet, dark wood, gold details, and light marble. Opened in the early 20th century, its Bar Anglais is now classified as an historic monument. With elegant light fixtures and soft lighting adding to the ambiance, it makes for a perfect spot on a night out in Paris.
Programs and performances range from classical to contemporary, and the theater has hosted some of the most prestigious international works on its stage. Some of its performances are English-friendly and presented with subtitles for non-French speakers, and many are new plays under direction of Bernard Murat. There’s also a beautiful terrace with views of the square below and the statue of British King Edward VI for whom the theater was named.
The theater is located between Place Madeleine and the Opera Garnier in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. It’s accessible by many metro lines, at stops including Havre-Caumartin, Opera, and Madeleine.
