Cirque-Théâtre Nantes, après Théâtre de la Renaissance.

The Cirque-Théatre in Nantes, France was opened on the 25th of December 1867.

It was constructed in just a couple of months time under the guidance of architect M. Chenantais. It was a modest building with modest façade but has a venue its dimensions were quite big. It could seat 3200 people, all with a good view on the entire stage. The building had two big foyers, a smoking room, a café, a buffet, etc.

The stage was bigger than the already existing theatre in Nantes: the Châtelet. Behind the stage were the stables with room for no less than 60 horses and big rooms to store hay.

A big fire destroyed the building and although rebuilding was planned the outbreak of World War I changed plans quite drastically. Eventually the building was completely demolished, never to be rebuild again.

Noways the site where the building once stood is occupied by a church. The Église protestante unie de Loire-Atlantique.
