The Comedie Francaise or Theatre-Francais is one of the few state theaters in France. Founded in 1680, it is the oldest active theater company in the world. Established as a French state-controlled entity in 1995, it is the only state theater in France to have its own permanent troupe of actors. Shown is the entrance to the Salle Richelieu in Paris, the principal theater of Comedie Francaise.
