Show: The Virtuoses
June 3 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Virtuoses: a unique show, this truly imaginative blend of classical music, magic, and Charlie Chaplin-style humour features two funny and lovable characters, each of whom will stop at nothing to outdo the other and emerge victorious in an explosive recital on Friday 3 June 2022, at 8.30 pm, in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
These 2 pianists take the stage with one objective: to mix music, contemporary magic and “Chaplinesque” clowning. In a spectacle drawing on poetry and craziness, Les Virtuoses run together the virtuosity of the concert performer and the spirit of the clown. With their four hands, skillful but impish, they liberate the classics with irrepressible brio. But this duo doesn’t just play music, they enhance it with magical transformations. Then with the tips of their fingers, they touch the strings leading the audience into a wonderful dream world. A dancing light takes center stage and twirls among the tunes, notes which take flight in a flurry of doves’ wings. Musicians, actors, magicians, the irresistible Virtuoses achieve the seemingly impossible, marrying wild imagination with seriousness and making great music come alive for everybody. This is a dream-like celebration in music carried off infectious enthusiasm by these two dynamic pianists.
