English: This theatre was built as a playhouse in 1846 by Alexandre Dumas and was located in Paris on the boulevard du Temple near the intersection with the rue du Faubourg du Temple. The project was financed by the Duke of Montpensier, but his father King Louis Philippe I refused to have his son's name attached to the building, and it was named Théâtre Historique before it opened on 20 February 1847. Dumas closed the theatre due to financial difficulties on 20 December 1850. The theatre was later leased to the revived Opéra National, originally founded by Adolphe Adam, but now under the directorship of Edmond Seveste, and underwent minor renovations to convert it to an opera house before reopening on 27 September 1851. The Opéra National changed its name to the Théâtre Lyrique on 12 April 1852. The building was demolished in 1863 to make way for the Place de la République during Haussmann's renovation of Paris.
