Opera and theater, sports and stamps… This weekend is rich in diverse and interesting events and here we selected the most interesting ones.

I Puritani

Фестиваль джаза Монте-Карло: Scott Bradley’s Postmodern Jukebox и The Puppini Sisters

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.

The Puppini Sisters

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.

Christmas concert

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.

This year, Ars Antonina Association is inaugurating an award at Christmas Concert 2017 to recognize among the young students selected for this concert, the one who deserves a stay in the International Summer Academy abroad.

Visiting Mr. Green

And theater is waiting for you with a few pieces, the first one is “Visiting Mr. Green”, contemporary theatre by Jeff Baron with Jacques Boudet and Thomas Joussier on Friday 1 December, at 8.30 pm, Saturday 2 December, at 9 pm and Sunday 3 December, at 4.30 pm in Théâtre des Muses.

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.

Vienna 1919. A young author seeks to extricate himself from the memory of his father, a poet who became a national icon. He suffocates in the family home where everything is organized by his mother around the cult of the great man. It is then that a woman returns there whose secret could free the young man from his straitjacket.
