Restoration of the theatre began in Spring 2013 thanks to an agreement between the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the French Governement dedicating 5 M€ to the restoration.  In recognition of the sponsorship by the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, French Governement decided to rename the theatre as "Theatre Cheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan" (Cheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Theatre). The achievement of the first stage of renovation has allowed the opening of the theatre to the public on May 3, 2014. Picture by Manuel Cohen
