It is not closed and is the frequent site of free concerts (often by visiting choirs or other groups that need a performance venue to justify their European jaunts) There is a Mozart Requiem scheduled for July this year.

Apologies, these events are advertised by the Parish Council and so not necessarily taking place in the actual church.

There is a full schedule of concerts all summer in the church. These require tickets. There are also frequent free concerts, generally noon time.

FWIW there is also a little known restaurant in the basement accessible through a side door:

I'm curious - where did you read that La Madeleine was closed? I find that really odd...

As most have said, it's alive and well, and hasn't been closed for as long as I can remember.

My neighbor is a member of the parish of the Madeleine and attends Mass there every week.. I can't imagine that it is closed for any reason. How bizarre!

Isn't it the national Cathedral as it hosts state funerals?
