Théâtre Mogador, Paris

Théâtre Mogador, Paris

Founded in 1913 and designed by Bertie Crewe, Théâtre Mogador is a Parisian music hall theater located in the 9th well-known shopping district. It seats 1,800 people on three tiers. An audience of connoisseurs comes here to find an informal but serious ambiance. If you have sophisticated tastes you must definitely pass by and see a good performance as this is an important theater on the Parisian scene for many years now. In 1913 financier Sir Alfred Butt rented an area in Paris. Built according to English music hall principles and style during World War I, the theater was originally named the "Palace Theatre", after the like-named one in London, in order to appeal to British soldiers. The name was shortly thereafter changed to "Théâtre Mogador", Mogador being the old name of the town of Essaouira in Morocco. The inauguration guests include President Wilson, in France to negotiate the Treaty of Versailles. It was inaugurated by US president to be Franklin Delano Roosevelt April 1919. From 1920 it was a Cine-variety, and gained fame with the performances of Sergei Diaghilev's "Ballets Russes", and with the Thés Mogador – performances of operettas and plays in the afternoon. Until the seventies, the Théâtre Mogador was mainly used for performances of operettas, including Mistinguett. An extensive renovation restored the building to new splendour in 1983. In 2005, it was purchased by the Stage Entertainment group (then called the "Stage Holding - The Theater Group").
