The oldest Music Hall in France
The Olympia remains the oldest active music hall in France. Inaugurated in 1893, it has seen thousands of artists pass by since the performances by French cancan dancer La Goulue and transformist Fregoli. Become legendary over the decades, the hall, with a capacity of 2,000 seats, has seen the biggest performers, from Edith Piaf to Jacques Brel, from the Beatles to the Rolling Stones, from Barbara to Brassens… and eight times Dalida .
Today, with its legendary facade of orange letters, nestled between the Madeleine Church and the Garnier Opera House, the Olympia hosts almost one show per day and an eclectic program combining French and international song, humor, charity evenings. All the programming is available on the Olympia website, where you can book online.
