The biggest names have passed through the Châtelet since its inauguration under Napoleon III. Its glittering interior preserves the memory of adaptations of novels which have travelled around the world, including Gulliver's Travels and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Saint-Saëns created his Danse Macabre there, Around the World in 80 Days was performed on its stage more than 3,000 times, and Tchaikovsky, Massenet and Mahler directed their works there. Later, Georges Méliès amazed audiences with his cinematographic wizardry. More recently, in 1980, the Théâtre de Châtelet underwent a change when it became the Théâtre Musical. Nureyev, Offenbach and Bernstein were among the regularly scheduled artistes before a major shift was begun towards Broadway, with My Fair Lady and An American in Paris...
