Book Release

Take your own private tour through the Swiss home of Dame Joan Sutherland Richard Bonynge. This 350 page glamorous coffee table book will have over 1000 photos detailing the contents of this gorgeous home including some of Richard Bonynge’s collections and anecdotes of their life together. For those fortunate enough to have discovered and experienced the thrill of opera and all the larger than life characters associated with it, to enter Chalet Monet is somewhat of a fairy tale experience that could be taken right out of a Cinderella story. Chalet Monet is a house with a thousand stories. It is living history, theatrical, a beautiful home with enormous spirit like its owners. It radiates grandeur yet intimacy with places to sit and contemplate, views to linger over, books to be read, paintings to admire and music to listen to. It is a treasure trove for the senses where many a story has been told or begun. Only the walls and its owners remember the decades of music making here and possibly the odd neighbour and the cows on the grassy slopes.
