Francis Rosset’s book “Ballets à Monte-Carlo” presented recently in Monaco

Francis Rosset’s latest book recounts the history of dance in the Principality of Monaco

For former Société des Bains de Mer manager and engineer Francis Rosset, Monte-Carlo has been a source of discovery and inspiration in both his personal and his professional life.


Francis Rosset has undertaken an enormous amount of research to shine a light on a number of documents and photographs relating to dance which he found in the State archives and the archives of Monte-Carlo SBM, as well as thousands of press articles.


His book, “Ballets à Monte-Carlo”, runs to 300 pages and is the result of three years of work. It illustrates how dance has always played a key role in the cultural life of the Principality – performances have been given since 1654.


“Ballets à Monte-Carlo” is available for purchase at FNAC and Monaco book shop Scripta Manent.
