It is a comfortable theater - large but not cavernous. The entrance is beautiful and the views on the terrace outstanding. After the wonderful adieu performance (their last in... More

As stunning as the exterior of the building may be the interior is even better. With its murals wide stairways and amazing gallery space. We came to a Trisha brown ballet and the evening couldn't be better.

After being invited over to Paris to see the recent Focus on Australia season of dance, it was my first time seeing work in this venue. It is a vast building taking over many levels and it must have emptied many marble trees as the floors, steps, walls & ceilings are made from this opulent material. I ventured into the... More

The "Théâtre National de Chaillot" is located at the site of the legendary "Palais du Trocadéro", built for the "Universal Exhibition of 1878". The actual "Palais de Chaillot", officially inaugurated in 1939, totally replaces the old "Palais du Trocadéro" and, curiously, was built for the "Universal Exhibition of 1937"! Amazing legends of a temple devoted to danse, music and theather!... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
