Concert by Véronique Sanson

There are several concerts and shows, for example, “Pablo Mira”Show will be on stage of the Grimaldi Forum Monaco on Saturday 1 June 2024, at 8 pm.

Family, sexuality, new technologies… In his new show, Pablo Mira muses on how our society has changed over the last thirty years. And while he has abandoned his cartoonish reactionary editorialist persona, he retains all his spirit and biting satire. This is the comedian’s second stand-up show, following the hilarious 2017 tour “Pablo Mira says stuff for money” which played to sell-out audiences.

Christina Aguilera and Myriam Fares come to Monte-Carlo Summer Festival 2022

La Note Bleue Summer Festival starts with Carlos Lopes concert on Friday 31 May 2024, at 9 pm in La Note Bleue.

Carlos Lopes’ vibrant creole heritage offers a unique blend of Afro Pop, Soul, Jazz and RnB drawing from his Cabo Verde cultural heritage and a modern take on contemporary styles. Writing incredibly catchy songs delivered in a joyful and charismatic manner, Carlos Lopes’ return to our stage is something everyone is looking forward to!

La Note Bleue Summer Festival continues with “The Zenmenn” that will plunge you into a mystic world of shimmering harps and languid guitars on Saturday 1 June 2024, at 9 pm. Their luscious sounds, synth laden grooves and melodic experiments taking you on a Balearic journey. The Zenmenn paint with a palette of many colours taking influence from music all over the world and transcribing it into their own, sun-kissed and vibrant compositions.

KO KO MO, an explosive musical duo consisting of Warren (guitar, lead vocals) and Kevin “K20” (drums, backing vocals), will be on stage of Espace Léo Ferré on Saturday 1 Juin 2024, at 8.30 pm. Together, the pair tear up the stage, following loyally in the footsteps of their heroes of the 1970s, subtly playing on their influences with their own version of classic rock, producing a result that’s nostalgic yet defiantly contemporary.

Romantic comedy "Ce qui reste d'un amour"

Romantic comedy “Ce qui reste d’un amour” (“What’s left of a love”) will be on stage of Theatre des Muses on Thursday 30, Friday 31 May, and Saturday 1 at 8:00 p.m., Sunday June 2 at 4:30 p.m.

Hugo is a musician, seducer and freedom-lover. Alice is an actress, idealist and romantic. Exactly one year after their sudden breakup, Alice shows up at Hugo’s house in the middle of the night: what remains of this love that she thought would be eternal?

The former lovers pretend to hide their trouble, they lie to each other, resist, waver… Exactly a year after that night, it’s Hugo who rings Alice’s doorbell… What’s left of un amour is a play about the strength, mystery and contradictions of the feeling of love.

A play for kids "Qui a coupé l’eau?" (Who cut off the water?)

And a play for kids “Qui a coupé l’eau?” (Who cut off the water?) will be also on stage of Theatre des Muses on Wednesday May 29 at 4:30 p.m., Saturday June 1st at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., and Sunday 2 at 11:00 a.m.

Kimo, an intrepid and curious little girl, discovers one morning that there is no more water in the taps. She travels the world and meets a polar bear, a fish or even “a water engineer”. The situation is alarming: there is less and less drinking water on the planet!
