The Elysium Montmartre is a Parisian theater located Boulevard of Rochechouart, in the middle of the popular quarters of Montmartre.
HistoryIn 1807, the room of the Elysium Montmartre invents a new musical style: the Cancan. It launches the phenomenon of the reviews which will be imitated in all the rooms of the district like the Folies Shepherdess or the Bataclan.
The room is known for the equivocal individuals who attend it and the daily brawls, like for the dirtiness of its floor (after some wide variations, the lower parts of the dancers did not have any more same whiteness!).
Joseph Oller, having heard of the success of the square in the Elysium Montmartre and which want to reconcile the “good company” with this kind of spectacle, went to engage a great number of the artists of the Elysium Montmartre for the opening in October 1889 of its new establishment: the Moulin-Rouge. Oller notices in particular Goulue, called “Vacuum-Bottle”, which will become one of the most famous cabaret dancers.
The Elysium Montmartre is also a source of inspiration of the painters and artists of the Hillock (Toulouse-Lautrec will paint many paintings there).
Then the musical programming of the Elysium Montmartre diversifies and evolves/moves. The room accommodates at the 19th century one of principal the revolutionary clubs (places of discussions where “utopians and mad” remake the world).
The RoomIts strange decoration, a great height of ceiling and its splendid mouldings, as well as a large mezzanine and its imposing scene make a particularly magic place of it.
The Elysium Montmartre, which accommodates today concerts (1200 places debouts), became in a few years one of the reference marks of the Parisian nights.
