The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is a thea­tre at 15 avenue Montaigne. De­s­pite its name, the thea­tre is not on the Champs-Élysées but ne­arby in ano­ther part of the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Opened in 1913, it was de­si­gned by French ar­chi­tect Auguste Perret and foun­ded by jour­na­list and im­pre­sa­rio Gabriel Astruc to pro­vide a venue sui­ta­ble for con­tem­porary music, dance and opera, in con­trast to tra­di­tio­nal, more con­ser­va­tive, in­sti­tu­ti­ons like the Paris Opera. It hosted the Ballets Russes for its first sea­son, sta­ging the world pre­mière of the Rite of Spring on Thurs­day May 29, 1913, thus be­co­m­ing the ce­le­bra­ted lo­ca­tion of one of the most fa­mous of all classical music riots.
