Chalet Monet

Inside the Home of Dame Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge

This sumptuously produced coffee table book captures the essence of the fairy tale that is Chalet Monet. Inside its pages over 1000 photographs bring to life the lavish home of two of the greatest international icons in opera, Dame Joan Sutherland OM AC DBE and her husband, Maestro Richard Bonynge AC CBE. Overlooking Lake Geneva in Switzerland, Chalet Monet is a spectacularly unique residence, a tower and picture windows, surrounded by beautiful gardens give way to a home brimming with antiques, paintings and objet d’art.

In his charming, eloquent, conversational style, Richard Bonynge takes us inside the home he has shared with Dame Joan, and in so doing provides rare insight into their incredible careers and lives, and the lives of stars, royalty, presidents and cultural icons whom they called friends and neighbours.
