After a very athletic weekend last week with the Monte-Carlo Rolex Master in the center of everybody’s attention it’s time to turn to arts.
The second edition of artmonte-carlo will welcome at the Grimaldi Forum, under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, nearly 40 rigorously selected international galleries, as well as a dozen exhibitions of major institutional and private collections. From April 28th to April 30th, this cultural event will be distinguished in the world of art fairs by its singular concept of an “art salon”: a limited size resulting in quality exhibitions and a wide variety of exhibitions invited combine to give it the look of a mini-biennial.
Music lovers will enjoy Claudio Capeo Concert performing this weekend in Espace Leo Ferre on April 29 at 8.30 p.m. This accordionist already has a long way behind him. From the street to the stage, he refined his style and found himself to participate in The Voice 5. Claudio Capéo seduced the judges by his interpretation of Michel Delpech’s Chez Laurette and acceded to the battles alongside Florent Pagny. You will hear catchy and captivating melodies that remains in our minds from the first time you hear it. Tickets are at €24-€28.

François Bourcier revives in this show the resistants and the righteous of 1940, who, by simple little gestures, sometimes at the risk of their own life, have tipped the history and capitulated the enemy.
This overwhelming piece, composed of a succession of authentic testimonies and end-to-end stories, makes it possible to understand how the flame of the Resistance could have originated in the hearts of these heroes and leaves the public nothing but admiring and moved. Tickets are available at €18-€29.

Tickets range from €20 to €30.
