La Damnation de Faust
Almost forty years after the creation of La Damnation de Faust by Hector Berlioz, Raoul Gunsbourg, the brilliant director of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, provided a resounding answer to the dilemma that animated the musical world of the 19th century: was La Damnation de Faust an oratorio (dramatic legend) as advertised or a real work intended for the theatre? By staging the work of Berlioz, Gunsbourg freed himself from a taboo and accomplished a masterstroke. The Monegasque stage, known as a luxurious opera house where one could admire the most famous throats of the time, was then placed in the heart of Europe as an intense centre of creation. The impact of this first iconoclastic and phantasmagoria staging is such that it will secure a special place for Berlioz's work on international operatic stages.

This is an Access Event. Access Events are specially selected for our community by the ASMALLWORLD Team and we have arranged for our members to benefit from privileged conditions when possible. This event has been organised by a third party, however, Ambassador David Holis will be present and able to assist you onsite.
