Some venues are equipped for people with hearing disabilities (Odéon-Théâtre de l'EuropeOpéra national de Paris, Comédie-FrançaiseThéâtre National de Chaillot...). Finally, foreign visitors can also enjoy theatre performances in Paris thanks to surtitling in English for certain shows. They can hear the actors performing in French, but have the English text right in front of them. Enjoy French culture just as thousands of Parisians do every day!
