Below is a selection of performances staged with English surtitles. 

So, you’ve done all the usual daytime Parisian attractions; the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, Sacré-Cœur, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay… Now, what about your evening? Our proposal: a theatre performance, followed by dinner. That’s what a “true” Parisian would do. You don’t speak French, I hear you saying… No worries, Esprit de France has thought about that, too; Theater in Paris makes theatre going more accessible by arranging performances with English surtitles. Just book a place for one such performance through their website and you will be allocated a prime seat for reading the surtitles of the performance in English. You will also receive a program of the performance in English and be met and greeted by an English-speaking guide at the theater, who will provide you with further information both on the performance and on the venue.
