Initially built in the early 1800s and used by Offenbach, then destroyed to make way for a panorama built by Charles Garnier (the architect of Paris' opera house), the building as we know it dates from 1894 and currently belongs to François Pinault (he whose son is now married to Selma Hayak). The theatre contains one large auditorium for over 1,000 people and a smaller 311-seater called - quaintly - Popesco, after deceased French actress and previous manager of the theatre, Elvire Popesco.
