"This theatre, situated upon the boulevard du Temple, was built under the direction of Messrs. Vincent and Chatelain, and opened on the 14th of April, 1821.
The front is composed of a large arcade adorned with two Corinthian columns and two  pilasters, between which are colossal figures of Thalia and Melpomene. In the tympanum of the arch are two genii, holding in one hand a trumpet, and in the other a crown. Above is a pediment, which presents two kneeling genii supporting the arms of France.
The interior is neatly ornamented, and will contain upwards of fourteen hundred spectators. "
