The Imperial Theatre at Château de Fontainebleau, one of the premier examples of Second Empire theatres, has long awaited restoration. His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a great lover and patron of the arts, has generously sponsored the renovation of the theatre and its opening to the public. His Highness has supported a number of artistic projects, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi, and has pledged a renewable annual budget of five million euros to restore the Imperial Theatre at Fontainebleau. In recognition of this donation the French Minister of Culture and Communication, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres, renamed the theatre on April 27th, 2007 in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan after the patron of the arts who saved it from falling into ruin.
