For its closing evening, on Saturday 2nd December at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo, the festival has chosen Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox. Opening act: The Puppini Sisters.
Many bands have been formed in a garage, but this one was created in a basement: in this case in the basement of the house of the New York pianist Scott Bradlee in Queens with a few musician friends who liked to play the hits of the moment rearranged in various musical genres. They’re clamored for on four continents, and since then they have been spreading their love of the hits accommodated to the vintage sauce.
Opening act: The Puppini Sisters
When you start out retro, you don’t expect to become true originals – but that’s the position The Puppini Sisters (Marcella Puppini, Kate Mullins and Emma Smith) are delighted to find themselves in.
Another music event is a Christmas concert by talented young artists organised by the Ars Antonina Association on Saturday 2 December, at 6 pm Théâtre des Variétés.

Ross, young executive, hits with his car Mr Green, an old man of 86 years. Accused of dangerous driving, he is sentenced to six months of visits to the old man every week to help him in his daily life. Widowed, Mr Green lives recluse in his apartment. Only a few habits connect this practicing Jew to life.
When Ross knocks on his door for the first time, he is received as an intruder. His good intentions are put to the test, Mr Green is not the most accommodating. But by dint of habit and perseverance, the young man will gradually tame the misanthrope.
