The Opera of Vichy Museum

1. The Vichy Opera museum.   2. Exhibition "Camille Saint-Saëns" 2021.   3. Exhibition "Camille Saint-Saëns" 2021.  

Created in 2002 thanks to the Noëlle and Gabriel Peronnet Foundation, the Opera Museum brings together, preserves and showcases the archives of the Théâtre du Grand Casino de Vichy (now Palais des Congrès-Opéra). Posters, photographs, costumes, projects and sets, programs and newspapers tell the story of an exceptional artistic life.

The only theater museum in the province, it is considered by the National Library as one of the richest collections in Europe by the quality, quantity and rarity of the archives it holds. These archives were rather difficult to find, collect and organize from the end of 1987 until the installation of the museum in 2001-2002.
