Since 2017, the Rallye Père-Fille™ the event has brought together fathers and daughters who love beautiful things: special attention to detail, welcoming tables, first-class hotels and meetings with other crews who share the same philosophy. The next edition of the Rallye Père-Fille™ will start from Monte-Carlo from 28 to 30 April 2023.
In 2023, the rally is changing. Not only because its logo is changing to distinguish it from the Rallye Père-Fils™ but also because there is a limited number of crews of 50. As for the cars, even if the rally is open to all makes (see the list of eligible models), it will now be composed of 25 classic and 25 modern cars, the models also having to be all different. In addition, the competition will include two classifications, according to the classic or modern categories.
This week les Ballets de Monte-Carlo present “La Belle” on stage of the Grimaldi Forum Monaco from Wednesday 26 to Saturday 29 April at 7.30 pm and Sunday 30 April 2023 at 3 pm.
Dive into a beautiful yet ferocious psychoanalytical study of the famous fairy tale by Perrault. Jean-Christophe Maillot has striven to break through the sugary Disney crust of La Belle to create a ballet that speaks directly to our inner child, our fears and our desires. This production introduces us to the lesser-known second act of Perrault’s tale, in which the heroine’s awakening and her wedding to the Prince are not the end of the story. This part is dark and terrifying: the Princess, now Queen, and her children are threatened by her stepmother, the Ogress Carabosse.

Nouveau Musée National de Monaco invites you to see its new exhibition “George Condo – Humanoids” open from Friday 31 March to Sunday 1 October 2023, in Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Paloma.
For George Condo, “the Humanoid is not a science fiction monster, but a depiction that uses traditional methods to bring a person’s inner emotions to the surface”. Over the course of eight sections, the exhibition traces the continuity of a profuse body of work that ranges from “space beings” to Who’s Who, from Guido Reni to Bugs Bunny. Featuring specially produced paintings, the exhibition offers a glimpse of the artist’s process of invention – as crazy as it is erudite – of humanoids.
Of course there are other interesting events taking place in Monaco. If you want to learn more about them visit our Calendar.
