Theatre in English for foreigners

Surtitling and perfomance in English: packages adapted to foreign audiences.

Many non-French speakers would like to attend a theatre performance in Paris … but the language barrier can cause quite a problem.

Two options are available for them: surtitling in English and performance in English. Packages adapted to foreign audiences – tourists, foreign residents, students … – staying in Paris, who are finally going to have the opportunity to fully enjoy a performance in a Parisian theatre!

Performances surtitled in English

Theatre in Paris offers subtitling in English for plays performed in the top Parisian theatres (Théâtre du Ranelagh, Théâtre Edouard VII, Le Comedia, Théâtre Edgar, Salle Gaveau...).

This initiative provides quality English translations done by theatre translation specialists. International audiences therefore lose none of the quality compared with the public who follow the play in French.

And to ensure ease of reading of subtitles (displayed in real time above the stage), Theatre in Paris books the most appropriate seats for its customers.

The English-speaking Theatre in Paris team personally welcomes their guests, giving them a programme in English before seating them and presenting the show.
