Presentation

Inaugurated in 1777 in the presence of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, this theater with its lovely blue and gold auditorium is one of the oldest preserved in France.
Built by J.-F. Heurtier, it may be considered Versailles' first theater, where, until then, there was only an uncomfortable auditorium on the rue Royale. This initiative came about thanks to Marguerite Brunet, known as la Montansier, who headed a theatre business holding privileges in all of western France and everywhere the court resided. The Versailles building’s success as a theater lasted until 1789.

The building was purchased by the city in 1834: it has since become the municipal theater, which was notably directed in the Twentieth Century by Marcelle Tassencourt and Francis Perrin.
