The first of four performances of Jean-Christophe Maillot's ballet Chore takes place this evening. Part inspired by Hollywood musicals, the choreography is structured in five scenes, rather than a single narrative. Dancers perform to music by Bach and John Cage, as well as an improvised drum solo.
We're looking forward to some of the upcoming events in the 2014-15 Monte Carlo Philharmonic concert season. In September, Beethoven's Emperor Piano Concerto, in October, Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto no 2, a Christmas concert of music by Tchaikovsky, and next February, French singer and actress Marion Cotillard takes on the role of Jeanne d'Arc au Bucher, in the oratorio of the same name.
My Sushi is looking for 100 people in Monaco to help beta test a mobile phone app. Participants are promised special offers from the restaurant menu. If you'd like to volunteer, visit the My Sushi facebook page and like the post that starts "Nous recherchons sur Monaco ...."
Finally, you may find changes soon at Tavernetta restaurant on the Rocher, and at Palace Cafe, the small coffee bar at Park Palace above avenue de la Costa. Both places have recently seen a change of management company.
