First associated with the Symbolist movement at the end of the 19th century, revealing a number of young authors, in particular from the Nordic countries, and originally a concert hall, the L’Oeuvre theater is also the place where the famous Ubu Roi play by Alfred Jarry was created in 1896.
L’Oeuvre is synonymous with diversity. Devoted primarily to the theater, this intimate venue with 336 seats also welcomes, for short series, great actors and actresses for special readings, but also to open the stage to future talents in humour and music and to offer artists the opportunity to stage original, unique and festive evenings.
L’Oeuvre perfectly complements the Group’s other venues, in particular the Olympia with its large hall and its Salle de Billiard. It is also occasionally used as a showcase for Canal + broadcasts.
