Almost forty years after the creation of Hector Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust, Raoul Gunsbourg, brilliant director of the Monte-Carlo Opera, gave a resounding answer to the dilemma that animated the musical world of the 19th century: Was the Damnation of Faust an oratorio (dramatic legend) as announced or a real work destined for the theatre? By staging the work of Berlioz, Gunsbourg freed himself from a taboo and accomplished a masterstroke.

On the occasion of the centenary of Albert I, it seemed more than opportune for the Monte-Carlo Opera to return with today’s eye to this founding event.
