Raoul Gunsbourg Exhibition

An emblematic figure in opera management, Raoul Gunsbourg was director of the Monte-Carlo Opera from his appointment by Prince Albert I in 1892 until 1951. Because of his creative audacity (countless world premieres in Monte-Carlo, including L’Enfant et les sortilèges de Ravel, La Rondine de Puccini, Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame de Massenet, Hélène de Saint-Saëns, Pénélope de Fauré, etc.), his artistic flair to attract the greatest singers (Enrico Caruso, Féodor Chaliapine, Nelly Melba…), we can consider him as a master of his craft.
