Theatre shows in Paris for all

Paris enjoys a rich and often suprising theatrical scene, much of it accessible even to non-French speakers. Although revered for its sumptuous Opéra productions and the groundbreaking avant-garde performances of a century ago, the French capital also has an impressive contemporary dance scene, with domestic talent and plenty of visitors from the rest of the world. Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and her company Rosas are among the commuters, and superstars Trisha Brown and William Forsythe also visit regularly, drawing healthy crowds.
