The Palazzetto Bru Zane, which was established in Venice in 2009, works with its team to bring forgotten French Romantic works back to life. In order to mark its first eventful decade in music, the French Centre for Romantic Music is holding a gala event featuring a blend of light music, and excerpts from operas and symphonies by Offenbach, Hervé, Godard, Joncières, Saint-Saëns, Méhul, Lemoyne and many more besides. A number of artists who have contributed to the history of the Venetian institution will be supporting this anniversary event.
