Among the oldest French dramatic and musical institutions, the Opéra Comique was founded in 1714 under the reign of Louis XIV.
In 1783, the Opéra Comique moved into a theater named after a famous librettist, Charles‐Simon Favart. The Salle Favart burnt down twice and was rebuilt on the same site. The Opéra Comique was granted the third Salle Favart in 1898.
