The Opéra de Monte-Carlo’s 2024/25 schedule is a masterpiece in itself, featuring works from the world’s most celebrated composers and infusing great pieces from the past with a wholly modern edge that is becoming the hallmark of the opera house under Cecilia Bartoli.  

Cecilia Bartoli’s vision for the Opéra de Monte-Carlo grows stronger every year. For her third season here, she has put together a line-up of 14 projects and 30 performances, including five staged productions, three operatic concerts and six concert events that include a gala with a repertoire that will cover more than five centuries of works from some of the musical world’s greatest stars.  

During the opening month of the season, from late October through November, the spotlight will be focused exclusively on Giacomo Puccini, with renditions of La Rondine, La Bohème, Tosca and a lyrical gala entitled Viva Puccini. This latter event, which will commemorate the centenary of the composer’s death and feature superstar tenor Jonas Kaufman, will be held on 17th November. Tickets can be reserved here

December will begin with A Tribute to Sinatra, a concert at which Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo will be showcasing how his talents reach beyond the realms of traditional opera as he forays into the world of pop music in a touching homage to the late icon Frank Sinatra.  

The month continues with the Donizetti classic L’Elisir d’Amore over four performances that will span the holiday season, and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio on 21st December.  

Mozart takes centre stage in January, with Don Giovanni and four showings of La Clemenza di Tito. February sees a recital by French tenor Benjamin Bernheim, followed by four performances of Wagner’s Das Rheingold 

Rounding out the season in March are Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde – Act II, Vespers for the Blessed Virgin by Monteverdi and a double bill of Ravel’s L’Heure Espagnole and L’Enfant et les Sortileges.
