Théâtre national

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Théâtre national is a status granted by the French government for a subsidized public theater company as part of its cultural mandate .

A total of six theaters have this status - five of them are in Paris , one in Strasbourg : The Comédie-Française for its drama ensemble, The Théâtre de l'Odéon since 1971 for European theater, the Théâtre national de Strasbourg since 1972 for its drama school , the Théâtre national de Chaillot since 1975 for contemporary dance, the Théâtre national de la Colline since 1986 for contemporary theater and the Théâtre national de l'Opéra-Comique since 2005 for opera.

These theaters are to be distinguished from those that are considered Center dramatique national ("National Dramatic Center"), although they also call themselves Théâtre national : These are, for example, the Théâtre national populaire and various French city ​​theaters such as the Théâtre national de Marseille , Théâtre national de Bordeaux en Aquitaine , Théâtre national de Nice , Théâtre national de Bretagne .

As a proper name, there is also a "Théâtre national" in Montréal .
