Les Printemps des Arts Comes to Monaco

    The Grimaldi Forum is an award-winning conference venue overlooking the Mediterranean in the heart of Monaco with a packed agenda of events more akin to a capital city than a small sovereign state the size of New York’s Central Park.

    A highlight of this spring’s calendar is the Printemps des Arts, a month’s worth of fantastic concerts, exhibitions and art held across the Principality throughout the month of March.

    The month-long festival which begins on March 14th and ends on April 13th is an annual event which has been held every spring in Monaco since the mid-1980s. Indeed, the popular event will this year celebrate its 30th anniversary with literally dozens of first-class musical and artists extravaganzas planned over the four week period.

    Here are some of the highlights to whet your appetite:

    • The Printemps des Arts will kick off on March 14th with a Portrait of Scriabine, by the Liege Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Rainier III Auditorium in the Grimaldi Forum. The concert starts at 8.30pm.
    • On Sunday March 16th acclaimed pianist Philippe Bianconi will be playing a packed program in the Salle Empire of the Grimaldi Forum from 11am.
    • Each year the festival includes a Nuit Surprenante which means literally a ‘night of surprises’. This year’s elusive event will take place on March 20th in the Parking des Pecheurs at 8pm.
    • On March 22nd at 6.30pm it is the chance for young talent to shine through at a performance entitled ‘Jeunes Talent1’. This concert is being held in the Grimaldi Forum’s Salle Empire.
    • The third weekend of the festival has been labelled ‘Weekend Japon’, with a number of rare performances of Japanese music as well as an exhibition of floral art by Ikebana in the Grimaldi Forum’s Salle Garnier.
    • On April 6th there will be a massive Birthday Party or Journée Anniversaire starting at 5pm in the Place du Casino and finishing off with a Grande Fete at the Life Club in Monaco.
