The Antoine Riboud theatre


Quai Besson
74500Évian-les-Bains

Every year in August, the theater offers "The Estivales Théâtrales" and boulevard comedies


Evian is one of the first French spa towns to have a municipal theatre to meet the thermal resort clientèle's desire for distraction. Built based on French architect Jules Clerc's plans, the theatre was inaugurated on 1 July 1885. With a capacity of 400 seats, it was built with artificial stone materials and integrates the latest technical innovations. It is considered to be an architectural pearl every bit as good as Parisian theatres. Its Neo-Classical style respects the balance of proportions with ribbed pilasters and rich interior decoration where sculptures, mosaics, enamels and gilding illustrate the exuberant decorations of the time. It is listed as a historical monument.
