Address Théâtre de la Coupe d'Or 101 Rue de la République, 17300 Rochefort, France

Built between 1766 and 1769, the Théâtre de la Coupe d’Or has been listed as a historical monument since 1969.

It is to Pierre-André Hèbre de Saint-Clément, then mayor of Rochefort, that the inhabitants owe the construction of this beautiful Italian-style theater. However, the building soon proved too expensive to maintain and was sold to the municipality in 1852 in an advanced state of disrepair. Lavishly renovated, it regained its superb appearance. In 1971, another renovation campaign transformed its hall into a true architectural treasure modelled on the Queen’s theater of the Petit Trianon in Versailles. Today, it hosts plays and shows.
