Information Théâtre Impérial de Compiègne

Detailed presentation of the room

In 1866, Emperor Napoleon III decided to build a new theater. Like Versailles, it comes to entertaining the court that accompanies the sovereign during his stays in Compiègne. The Emperor chose a field near the Palace, the very one on which stood the convent of the Carmelites, immortalized by the play of Georges Bernanos and the opera by Francis Poulenc. Work began the following year, while the World Expo in full swing.

The architect is Auguste-Gabriel Ancelet. He was born in 1829 and died in 1895. At first a pupil of Baltard, he was a boarder at the Villa Medici. Among his various achievements, include the front entrance of the Château de Pau and the Conservatory of Arts and Crafts. Professor at the School of Fine Arts, Government Architect under the Second Empire, Ancelet's mission was to look after the Château de Compiègne. Very naturally, he had to be chosen to design and realize the future Imperial Theater. For the construction of the latter, a sum of 1.371.000 gold francs is committed. The building is coming out of the ground. Then its exterior parts completed, all the trades involved begin its development.

Thus the painter Elie Delaunay realizes a decoration intended to decorate the circular ceiling of the room. This decor will never be put in place. The 19 July 1870, the war between France and Prussia bursts. The Imperial Theater becomes a site whose abandonment, provoked by the circumstances, seems at first provisional. But the disaster of Sedan occurs. It's time for calamity. The chances of seeing the room open one day at the Court fade forever. The Second Empire carries with it its pomp and entertainment.

The work of the architect Ancelet remains unfinished and lifeless. However, it is an architectural work of major interest. The Imperial Theater is distinguished first by its singular dimensions. His stage opening of 13 meters makes it the equal of the Théâtre du Châtelet. Ancelet also used a bold system of metal constructions for the upper parts of the building. Although particularly representative of the aesthetics of the Second Empire, the theater can not hide direct filiations as original and strong as each other: The Teatro Olimpico directed by Palladio in Vicenza, the Margravine Theater in Bayreuth, achievements of Gabriel or Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.

Finally, exceptional in its volume and its architecture, the Imperial Theater is also exceptional for its acoustic qualities. All the personalities of the music world who visited him were amazed and admired. Thus the famous conductor Carlo-Maria Giulini considers the room "as one of the most perfect in the world, more accomplished than that of the Musikverein Vienna, yet the reference in the field".
