Moulin Rouge cabaret Paris lit up at night

Cabaret in Paris is legendary and the most famous of them all is the Moulin Rouge. It’s the birthplace of the Cancan dance and since it opened in 1889, its shows have become ever more spectacular.

There are several captivating cabarets in the city with shows that dazzle and sparkle. The Crazy Horse is known for its provocative sensuality, the Lido offers truly stunning special effects and at César Palace it’s all glitz and glitter.

They’re all offering 2 for 1 during this special fortnight that celebrates theatre in Paris…

Parisians love their music of all sorts and one of the most popular new venues is the superb Philharmonie in the 19th arr. There are plenty of restaurants and cafés in the area but if you’re a steak frite fan – head to Boeuf Couronné, a historic brasserie famous for its steak and pommes souffle. Catch a performance by the famous Orchestra of Paris in this fabulous contemporary venue, it’s truly memorable.

Or how about Chicago Le Musical at Théâtre Mogador, the longest running American musical show on Broadway has wowed Paris audiences.

Blues, jazz including the Sidney Bechet Quintet at the Jazz Café Montmatre , classical, hip hop, rap, opera-dinner… There are dozens of concerts taking place in Paris, and all of them are offering two tickets for the price of one.

Theatre in Paris

Matinee performances and evening shows are programmed in top Paris venues including the historic Théâtre Ranelagh. Once the private theatre of a 17th century chateau, Molière’s The Miser, first played just around the corner at the Palais-Royal in 1668, will be performed.

International productions are staged in the original language with surtitles in English. You’ll hear actors perform in French with English text displayed above the stage, so that you can enjoy the culture of French theatre, with a service offered by Theatre in Paris.

One of the most popular shows for visitors is “How to become a Parisian in one hour”. This comedy one man show in English plays at the Théâtre des Nouveautés. It reveals the hilarious and human side of Paris.

There is an extraordinary range of productions to choose from, whatever your theatrical tastes.

Shows for the whole family

From jazz concerts for kids, to Holiday on Ice, there’s loads to keep the whole family happy. Don’t miss a chance to meet the dinosaurs at the Bormann-Moreno Circus. Seven generations of this theatrical family have entertained audiences. Adored by Parisians, their highly visual shows in a baroque big top are magical. Jugglers, tightrope walkers, clowns and domestic animals star – apart from the dinosaurs which are guaranteed to thrill! You can also take in a dinner show here which makes for a very special night out…
