Opera de Monte-Carlo Information

As the world’s elite converges on the Monte Carlo Casino, the opera house on its premises, the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, caters to the hyper-rich and cultured. Opened in 1879, the opera house was commissioned by the royal family to bring the arts to the Riviera playground.

The Opéra de Monte-Carlo, also known as Salle Garnier after its architect Charles Garnier, seats 524 in its relatively small, but incredibly opulent, auditorium. The Salle Garnier has been presenting world-famous talent from its inception; its opening performance featured Sarah Bernhardt. Since then, the house has hosted 45 world premieres.

The resident company at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo currently runs a season of five or six operas, from November through April.

The entry to the Salle Garnier is through the Monte Carlo Casino, and its idyllic location is further highlighted by large windows overlooking the sea. Individual ticket prices are in the €40 to €150 range. The first performance of each season at Opéra de Monte-Carlo is a black-tie gala with higher-priced tickets. The opera house has full bars to pull together James-Bond-worthy cocktails.
