All of the action of Act I takes place in the year 1640 in the hall of the Hotel de Bourgogne in Paris. The stage directions indicate that it is a "sort of tennis court arranged and decorated for a theatrical performance."
Don't be mistaken. The Hotel de Bourgogne is not a hotel where guests can rent rooms. Rather, it is a theater, built on top of the remains of a palace constructed by the dukes of Burgundy.
