Summer is not over yet! La Vita Monte-Carlo, a spectacular program of concerts, dinners, wine and champagne-tastings, picnics and more, organized by the SBM, is just around the corner.
From 10 September until 10 November, all of life’s pleasures can be savoured in unique or extravagant environments around Monaco: under the stars, aboard a yacht on the Mediterranean, at the Hôtel de Paris, or at a picnic with friends. Here are some highlights from the end-of-summer celebration.
Candlelight concert and dinner
La Vita Monte-Carlo kicks off with a concert featuring Stella Almondo, Irène Drésel and Élodie Frégé on Friday 10 September at the Salle Empire of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo.
Young Monegasque virtuoso pianist Stella Almondo will open the evening with a Chopin and Schumann program. Chef Franck Cerutti has been given free rein for a creative and colourful dinner. Rising DJ-composer, Irène Drésel will set the pace for dinner with electro music. And the sublime Élodie Frégé will enchant audiences with a stellar voice.
Doors open: 8:00 pm. Price: €430, drinks included.
“Dinner of your dreams”
Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer has selected various unique sites for tailor-made dinners and customers can choose their pick: on the Monte-Carlo Beach Club pontoon, at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, on the private terrace of the founder of the SBM, in the cellars of the Hôtel de Paris or aboard a Riva 56’ yacht for two or four. Meals will be provided by Monte-Carlo Catering.
