Alcazar (Paris): “

P0mbal: first entry

The ”’Alcazar”’ (later ”’Alcazar d’Hiver”’) was a [[Café-concert]] which opened in 1858, located at 10 Rue du Faubourg Poissonière in [[Paris]], and closed in 1902.

The café-concert was first directed by Joseph Mayer, then by Arsène Goubert who attracted the singer Thérésa (Emma Valladon) from the Eldorado. She sang for the first time when she was a comic actress and gained a triumph, becoming the first genuine star of the café-concert. Goubert then acquired another establishment on the [[Champs-Elysées]] which he called ‘[[Alcazar d’Ete]]”, renaming the ‘Alcazar’ to ‘Alcazar d’Hiver’ on the departure of Thérésa, the place then often changed names and proprietors. It was demolished in 1902 to be replaced by offices.
