Monaco Art Festivals
Monte-Carlo Spring (Performing) Arts Festival
The Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival (Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo) was inspired by Princess Grace in 1970. Princess Caroline of Hanover has been its president since 1984.
A topical program of first-class concerts, master classes, meetings with maestros and composers with the involvement of young talents from Music Academies will be thrilling to all audiences.
This unique event includes a number of concerts, lectures, performances and master classes in the Principality’s iconic venues: Opéra Garnier, Oceanographic Museum, Rainier III Auditorium, Amphithéâtre (One Monte-Carlo) and Théâtre des Variétés.
Monaco Art Week
HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco supports Art Monte-Carlo, which aims to make Monaco and the French Riviera a global center for visual arts.
Curated art shows will welcome visitors at the entrance of the Salon in the luminous Verrière of the Grimaldi Forum, where a unique and select number of galleries will show their collection of paintings, sculptures, and digital designs. The Tunnel Riva at Port Hercule will host an artistic installation. Exhibits also take place outside the Grimaldi Forum, allowing artworks to be shown throughout Monaco at Villa Sauber, and at the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer hotel resorts.
