Under the shared name Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, the Grand Théâtre and the Théâtre des Capucins put on an eclectic programme that includes all kinds of singing, acting and dancing by national and international performers. With high quality shows and a strong emphasis on inclusive programming, the municipal theatres strive tirelessly to meet the expectations of a cosmopolitan audience.
Located near the Pont Grande-Duchesse Charlotte in Limpertsberg, the Grand Théâtre functions as a theatre, dance and opera house. It hosts and coproduces dramatic, musical and dance performances, including operas, which are generally performed in their original language (French, German, English, Luxembourgish, etc.) and works with prestigious companies such as the Théâtre de la Ville de Paris, the Théâtre national de Chaillot, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord (Paris), the Théâtre de Caen, Sadler's Wells (London), La Monnaie in Brussels, the Opéra-Comique in Paris, the Deutsches Theater and the Deutsche Oper (Berlin), as well as with international festivals such as the Festival d'Avignon.
Located right in the heart of the city, the Théâtre des Capucins is a testament to the eventful history of Luxembourg's capital. Originally built as a Capuchin monastery, the building was later used as a grain warehouse. It was then turned into a theatre, but was subsequently abandoned. In 1985, it was renovated and reopened. With its focus on the dramatic arts, it attracts performers from all over Europe.
The Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg has two performance areas: the Grande Salle (943 seats) and the Studio (a kind of adaptable Black Box with approximately 250 seats).
The Théâtre des Capucins has proscenium concert hall with 270 seats.
