The Basics

The Odéon-Théatre de l'Europe is a spectacular place to catch a show while you’re in Paris. Since performances are scheduled from Tuesday through Sunday, it’s worth planning ahead to see if the week’s offerings catch your interest. While attending an event is the best way to see the interior of the theater, the building’s noteworthy exterior can be viewed on some walking tours of the Left Bank.

When to Get There

Regularly scheduled performances at the Odéon-Théatre de l'Europe take place Tuesday through Saturday at 8pm, with 3pm matinees on Sundays. Due to security checks, the theater recommends arriving at least 30 minutes before the show—late arrivals are not admitted. Arriving early is worthwhile anyway, since people watching from a café table in the foyer is a great way to enjoy the pre-show buzz.
