Spring Arts Festival

The word “festive” is part of “festival.” A word which encourages us to take advantage of every moment to experience a celebration of listening to live music. The Printemps des Arts has continued to explore music said to be “classical” since 1984, to show that it is anything but classical!
It just has to be listened to in new concert formats, with artists who take risks and stray from the beaten track! Other moments of the festival are designed to be unmissable experiences, like the Surprise Voyage – a much-anticipated event which takes you to a secret location – and the Monaco Music Forum, which mixes jugglers, brass band, dance… in one mad day.
Come and share these moments of pleasure with us.

A Bit of History...

The Printemps des Arts of Monte-Carlo was established in 1984 at the instigation of H.S.H. Princess Grace and Antoine Battaini who was then Director of Cultural Affairs in the Principality. Every year, over the course of five weekends between March and April, Monte-Carlo plays host to extraordinary artistic performances.
Since 1984, under the presidency of H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover, the Printemps des Arts plunges Monaco into the seething creative effervescence of the artistic world.
The first years highlighted celebrated soloists such as Daniel Barenboïm, Ruggera Raimondi, Lleana Cotrubas and many other legendary artists. Since 1987, the Printemps des Arts has been programming more or less unknown baroque operas and has opened up to visual arts. Botero and Marisa Del Re have thus been given pride of place in the Principality. In 1992, Rainier Rocchi the new Director of Cultural Affairs has been modernising the event, in particular by bringing jazz into the programme. 

Iconic Theatres

They are as much at the heart of the Printemps des Arts’ success as the performances themselves. Every year, audiences discover talented artists in an extraordinary environment. The Salle Empire of the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the Salle Garnier in the Opera de Monte-Carlo, the Salle des Etoiles of the Sporting Monte-Carlo as well as the Oceanographic Museum, the Rainier III Auditorium, the Galerie Marlborough and the Théâtre des Variétés, host every year the greatest artists and are the settings for exceptional performances.
