A summer school for children will take place from 8 to 12 July 2013 in connection with the exhibition "Monacopolis - Architecture, Urban Development and Decoration in Monte-Carlo"



For one week, children aged 8 to 12 will be able to visit the exhibition and discover Monte Carlo Opera's collection of hats, shoes and costumes.

They will learn about textile design with Belgian couturier Jean-Paul Lespagnard and will make a complete outfit with accessories inspired by a stage set from the Ballets Russes on show in this exhibition.
