Kazuki Yamada presents Beethoven & more
When it comes to opera, Monaco certainly does not disappoint. Running from 24th-31st January 2020, ‘La Boheme’ by Giacomo Puccini will be performed in collaboration with the Philharmonic orchestra at Place du Casino in Monte Carlo. With a refreshingly relatable story focused on the human experience of emotions and love, in particular, La Boheme is a masterclass in simple but moving storytelling.
Laurel et Hardy en folie!
Another of the first concerts of the new season is aimed at audiences young and old. A screening of classic silent films from the 1920s will be accompanied by musical improvisation from Paul Lay. You can expect belly laughs as Laurel and Hardy cause chaos within an orchestra, and even try to sell Christmas trees at the wrong time of year. The concert takes place on Sunday 9th February 2020 at Auditorium Rainier III.
