    adresse 15 ou 16 avenue Montaigne
    Written by Vincent Giroud

    To read...
    Do you know Ganna Walska? Born Polish in the Russian Empire, she was an apprentice cabaret singer before dreaming of a career as an opera diva. A great philanthropist, she spent the interwar period between Paris and the United States. On the advice of her friend, the conductor and musician Walther Straram, she acquired in the early 1920s the majority of the shares of the Société immobilière du Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, a theater which she owned until 1970. It is the little-known story of one of the great benefactors of French music that we have endeavored to retrace here.

This new Chronicle is also an opportunity to discover twenty previously unpublished images taken by the great photographer Sabine Weiss, who almost by chance "covered" many moments of the Festival seventy years ago.
