As demonstrated by the glamorous “Chérette,” Théâtrophone was a popular service that allowed listeners to enjoy opera and theatre performances for a small fee over the telephone. It began in Paris in 1890 and, by inserting a coin and listening through earphones, one could hear performances from the Paris Opera. Its popularity spread to other cities, including London, but the system was eclipsed by the radio and thus ended in 1932.
