Théâtre des Champs-Élysées Review

Théâtre des Champs-Élysées was the scene of 1913's infamous Battle of the Rite of Spring, when police had to be called in after the audience ripped up seats in outrage at Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps and Nijinsky's choreography. Today it is elegantly restored and worthy of a visit if only for the architecture (it's one of Paris's most striking examples of Art Deco). The theater also hosts first-rate opera and dance performances, along with jazz, world music, orchestral, and chamber concerts.
