‘The Travelling Collection’ is back for new season

A collection of captivating stage costumes and accessories from the Opéra de Monte-Carlo is once again making its way around Monaco as part of a unique travelling museum experience for the entire community.

Since 2002, the New National Museum of Monaco has preserved 4,000 stage costumes and 400 set models from the Opéra de Monte-Carlo and offered by the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer.

As part of this heritage collection, the museum puts together a “study” travelling collection, consisting of around 60 pieces that can be seen, touched and even worn in some cases.

A collection to be enjoyed by the whole Monaco community

Launched in 2018 as part of a project by artist Celia Pym, ‘La collection voyageuse’ offers a series of travelling workshops in educational, associative and medical establishments in the Principality and its surrounding areas.

Accompanying these fabrics, embroideries, headdresses and accessories is the museum’s mediation team, who run creative and hands-on workshops involving a range of art forms that raise awareness of conservation issues and restoration of works among different audiences.

The new season kicked off with a week at the École des Révoires, before being deployed at the École de la Condamine.

‘The Travelling Collection’ is an activity that continues throughout the year.
