Opera de Monte-Carlo, Monte-Carlo

#1 of 10 in Nightlife in Monaco
Concert / Show · Opera
The Opéra de Monte-Carlo is an opera house which is part of the Monte Carlo Casino located in the Principality of Monaco.

With the lack of cultural diversions available in Monaco in the 1870s, Prince Charles III, along with the Société des bains de mer, decided to include a concert hall as part of the casino. The main public entrance to the hall was from the casino, while Charles III's private entrance was on the western side. It opened in 1879 and became known as the Salle Garnier, after the architect Charles Garnier, who designed it.

During the renovation of the Salle Garnier in 2004–05, the company presented operas at the Salle des Princes in the local Grimaldi Forum, a modern conference and performance facility where Les Ballets de Monte Carlo and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra regularly perform.

  • In my view the best opera in the world. None of this pseudo modern stuff that others favor. Here you get the freshly created period costumes, the fantastic wigs and make up, the beautiful fresh voices in beautiful talented singers, technology and light are used to enhance decors, not to replace them. Bring a fur jacket because the AC is often well beyond comfortable ( zero stars to the AC technician! )
  • Gorgeous, simply. Don’t miss out in Monaco and get yourself a ticket to a show! The painted ceiling is to die for...
