#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on November 21st and November 22nd
This weekend right after the holiday is rich in events in Monaco. So male plans and don’t miss anything interesting.
The 21st Virtual No Finish Line is still on till Sunday 22 November 2020, 3 pm. This year, due to the Covid crisis, Children & Future, the association organizing the event, is introducing a special virtual dimension to the event. It will also go beyond the Monegasque borders and is setting itself the objective of covering 400,000km!
Run or walk in an outdoor location that you choose yourself individually. Do as many kilometers as you desire and do it as many times as you like. The more the merrier.
For each kilometer travelled Children & Future pledges to donate 1 euro to support projects in favour of sick or disadvantaged children.
You have a great chance to listen to “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, performed by the Chorus of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, the Children’s Choir of the Rainier III Academy of Music, and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Frédéric Chaslin, organised by the Opéra de Monte-Carlo on Friday 20 at 6.30 pm and Sunday 22 November 2020 at 3 pm (performance for a Young Audience), in Grimaldi Forum Monaco – Salle des Princes.

A new exhibition is open in the Oceanographic Museum as part of its program of actions to raise awareness and support the protection of coral reefs. For the third time the Monegasque artist Michel Aubéry exhibits his works in the Oceanographic Museum from November 4, 2020 to February 3, 2021.
And in this year 2020 dedicated to coral, Michel Aubéry was inspired by coral reefs and the animals that live there.
Nearly 40 works are exhibited in the conference room of the Oceanographic Museum, including 20 for the first time. All are devoted to the marine world, the artist’s favorite subject. At the request of the Oceanographic Museum, he agreed to focus on the reef world to create new works in shimmering colors.
Organized by the Direction des Affaires Culturelles de Monaco, the exhibition of filmed portraits made in Monaco by the French photographer Charles Fréger, is presented until January 3, 2021 at the Exhibition Hall of Quai Antoine I.
The exhibition was created in the particular context of deconfinement. The artist looks at Monaco and the different groups or communities that make up the country’s identity. Workers, athletes, pupils and artists have been filmed at a time when social distancing has become the norm. He chose to favor the moving image thus creating a greater proximity between the model and his audience.
“The portraits thus projected, on a linear wall of 26 meters, relate, for the first time in the work of Charles Fréger, more to the installation than to the exhibition of photographs” specifies Björn Dahlström, the Curator of exhibition, about this project.
Free entry Tuesday to Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. (closed on December 25, 2020 and January 1, 2021).
