Berlioz Society Home Page
(Monir Tayeb and Michel Austin)
This site is intended to provide a visual commentary on Berlioz's career in Paris, the centre of his activities through most of his life, from his arrival there as a young medical student in 1821 till his death in 1869. The site includes recently taken photos accompanied by a brief history and description of buildings and locations associated with Berlioz, such as his various homes, the theatre where he first saw Miss Smithson acting in Shakespeare's Hamlet, and venues of the premières of his works.
The house in which Berlioz was born is now a museum. Here you will find some very useful information about the museum, its history, its permanent exhibits, and the temporary exhibitions which it stages from time to time. The site also has numerous pictures of the museum and its collections.
