#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on January 28th and January 29th
It’s almost weekend and you are making plans for the weekend? Than here are a few suggestions for you and your company.
This year the public finally rediscovered all the magic of the circus on the occasion of two major anniversaries between January 20 and 29, 2023. The Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival will celebrate its 45th Edition and at the same time the 10th Edition of New Generation, an international competition for young circus artists.
To mark the jubilee editions of the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival and the New Generation Festival, brand new acts on the bill at the famous Fontvieille Big Top were designed to take your breath away!
As part of its anniversary celebrations, the Festival features an amazing magician who is renowned all over the world: Peter Marvey! Several times throughout the shows, he will captivate the audience with some incredible illusions that he has devised himself.
René Casselly Junior, from the great German circus family the Cassellys, which has won Festival awards twice before, and his two partners, Merrylu Casselly and Quincy Azzario, perform a sensational three-person horseback routine.
Juggling is a discipline that requires concentration, speed and agility to catch balls, hoops, clubs or – in a more unique take – cigar boxes, as the great juggler Kris Kremo has previously done. He is returning to the Festival, this time with his son, to perform a fully synchronized act.
The many other acts are also full of magic and surprises! Technical feats and poetry came together to delight audiences!
This weekend we follow the course of the Historic Monte-Carlo Rally 2023. The rally includes cars similar to the models that competed in the Monte-Carlo Rally up to its 51st edition in January 1983. All the teams have chances of finishing with quite impressive results thanks to a choice of three average speeds to be complied to all throughout the race. This 25th edition started on January 24th. The Gala and the Prize Giving will take place on the evening of February, 1st.
If you want to listen to classical music, Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra has a Symphonic Concert: “Mozart in Monaco” with Kazuki Yamada (conductor), Lucas & Arthur Jussen (pianos), Liza Kerob & Ilyoung Chae (violins) on Sunday 29 January 2023, at 6 pm, in Auditorium Rainier III. On the programme music by Mozart.
And Théâtre des Muses invites you to see the Musical burlesque “Tapis rouge” (“Red carpet”) on Saturday 28 at 8:30 p.m. and Sunday 29 January at 4:30 p.m.
Through episodes of her life, stage and backstage, the indescribable actress and singer Agnès Pat’ tells how she went from the fantasy of treading the “Red Carpet”, to making her own carpet at home! A burlesque musical show, mixing opera, tap dancing, hula hoop, American piano, medieval ukulele and comic texts. As gifted at the piano as she is a graceful dancer, Agnès sings like a nightingale and takes us into her dreamlike, tender, deliciously funny and crazy universe…
You can still enjoy the Roller Station organised by the Monaco City Hall from December 2, 2022 to February 26, 2023 in the Port of Monaco, Stade Nautique Rainier III.
There are several interesting exhibition going on in Monaco these days. If you still haven’t seen “Les Carabiniers du Prince” opened at the Monte-Carlo station till February 16, 2023, check it out. Twelve photographs dating from 1890 to 2022 are presented, in chronological order.
The history of the Prince’s Carabinieri Corps is closely linked to that of Monaco and the Princely Family. This prestigious military unit, 124 Carabinieri strong, provides daily guarding of the Prince’s Palace, the safety of the Sovereign Family, its property and dependencies. Missions dedicated to honorary services are also an integral part of the rhythm of their activities. Its motto, “Honor, Loyalty and Dedication”, gives meaning to the daily commitment of the Carabinieri.
The Oceanographic Museum’s Polar Mission exhibition is currently open and taking visitors on an epic journey from the North pole to the South pole. The exhibition kicked off on 4 June and covers five exciting themes spread over two levels.
