The Mogador Theater was built in 1919 when Sir Alfred Butt decided to offer the dancer Régine Flory, a replica of a London music hall, the Palace. It was inaugurated by the future President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt in April 1919. Beginning by hosting ballets, including Diaghilev's Russian Ballets, the Mogador theater then hosts musical performances and even some concerts.
