By adding 150 more works to the exhibition MONACOPOLIS, the NMNM participates in the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Société des Bains de Mer, bringing back to life - through costumes, props and models of décors – the operas produced under the direction of Raoul Gunsbourg and the Ballets Russes of the famous Diaghilev.

Exhibition Views


Villa Sauber offers a circuit through the emblematic neighbourhood of Monte-Carlo. The exhibition draws on more than 600 historical plans mostly hailing from the Société des Bains de Mer, sheds light on the work of the architects involved – over and above the famous signature of Charles Garnier – and underscores the extraordinary capacity for renewal which hallmarks architectures associated with vacationing and holidays, all created and turned towards a versatile public with fluctuating desires. To take just this one example, between 1863 and 1910, no less than ten architects, including Henri Schmit, would follow in each other’s footsteps to enlarge, transform, embellish, rectify, unify and even plan the Casino-Opéra de Monte Carlo. 

The architecture of the Casino, the Café de Paris, the Hôtel de Paris, the Eablissements des bains de mer, and the Palais des beaux-arts, all evoked thanks to mainly unpublished documents (plans, watercolours, photographs, films...) become the ideal setting for the presentation of these outstanding collections.
