The origins of the Théâtre du Rond-Point (literally, the Theatre of the Roundabout - sounds a lot better in French, doesn't it?) go right back to 1860. At the time is was called the 'Panorama National' and a little later the 'Palais des Glaces' of the biggest attractions of Belle Époque Paris, only becoming a proper theatre in 1981, when a company using the old Orsay station had to leave for it to be made into the Musée d'Orsay.
Completely remodelled and redecorated again in 1995, the Théâtre du Rond-Point is specialised in presenting modern plays by living playwrights, also housing a stylish, cosy restaurant where tea is served in the afternoon.
