Jeu de Paume Theatre

This is where Louis XIV used to play ‘la paume’ – an early type of indoor tennis in 1660. Converted into a theatre during the following century, it is one of the last surviving examples – together with the Théâtre de la Reine in Versailles – of an 18th century Italian-style auditorium. Its plush red velvet décor makes it an ideal venue for intimate operas, contemporary creations, recitals or chamber music concerts.
