Modern classics play to a chic crowd here at the Théâtre de l'Europe
(Theater of Europe), high atop the place de l'Odéon, between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter. European plays are predominantly staged at the Odéon, in French with subtitles in the original language. The decor in pure Italian style is composed of red and golden loges. This theater was inaugurated in 1782 by Marie-Antoinette, Louis XVIth's wife. The construction of this theater was part of a big Parisian refurbishing effort in the 18th Century.
