Treasures from the Collection of Florian Bruyas

Summary of exhibition curated by Lina Terjesen held in the University at Buffalo Music Library, October 15, 2009 - January 15, 2010. This exhibit showcases volumes from the library’s collection of opera scores collected by Florian Bruyas, French Senator, Director of the Lyon Conservatory, and author of Histoire de l’Operette en France (1855-1965), now considered a seminal volume in the study of French opera. Bruyas annotated the scores with information about performances of the works, including names and information about cast members. Many of the scores contain newspaper and magazine clippings or illustrations of stage designs for the operas.
