Charles Garnier, the architect of the famous Parisian opera house bearing the same name, was also behind the construction of its Monegasque cousin. 

The Opéra de Monte-Carlo is part of the myth and the legend of the iconic Monte-Carlo area. 

Built to enhance guests’ experience of the ‘High Art of Gaming’, the Salle Garnier is now a must-visit venue for some of the most wonderful operas, ballets and concerts in the whole of Monaco. 

With the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, the Casino de Monte-Carlo, the Brasserie du Café de Paris Monte-Carlo and the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the area of Monte-Carlo itself has become a jewel in Monaco’s heritage that has been instrumental in extending the Principality’s reputation to Europe and beyond. 

On the 25 January 1879, Verdi’s comic opera “Falstaff” was performed for the first time at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo in the Salle Garnier, which had just been finished for the occasion.

To celebrate the Salle Garnier’s 140th anniversary, “Falstaff” will be performed once again, with four exceptional shows staged by Jean-Louis Grinda, director of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo.
