Over the years, this theatre has become an institution. A lot of dedication and work goes into presenting the weighty year-long program presented by Henri Legendre, who is director, actor, and producer as the need arises. Generally, you'll see more classic, canonic plays here (like Molière or Sartre), but always presented with mastery and finesse. It's worth noting that Henri Legendre is a long-time friend of Arrabal. If you're lucky, you'll be in Nice for one of their astonishing performances. The théâtre de l'Alphabet is tiny; you'd better reserve your seats in advance.
In a small, little-frequented street, which runs alongside the famous Lycée Masséna (of which Apollinaire, and more recently, J.M.G. Le Clézio are former pupils), Colette and Jean-Pierre Soardi have established a much talked-about gallery which makes rue Désiré-Niel a bit better known. The temporary exhibitions by contemporary artists and their framing workshop co-exist in perfect harmony. An atmosphere of well-being emanates from this place and it's a real pleasure to linger in front of each piece of work. The gallery area is of generous dimensions, which give even greater intensity to its art.
