The Bibliothèque nationale de France et l’Opéra national de Paris celebrate the centenary of the death of Camille Saint-Saëns. The exhibition Saint-Saëns: a free spirit is the first major retrospective devoted to the musician. 200 pieces - musical manuscripts, correspondence, photographs and paintings, objects, models of sets and costumes - bring to life an exceptionally rich career, of an immense artist with a resolutely independent spirit.
