What's new

Last Sunday new measures to contain Covid-19 came into force. Bars, sports halls and spas are now closed, but diners, theatre-goers and gamblers can stay out until 22:00 as long as they have a valid ticket or "justificatif de deplacement" signed by the venue. There's a handy list of what you can and can't do on the Government website, including downloadable certificates for diners and workers.

The changes are causing problems for events organizers, with last minute cancellations, postponements and time changes. During November you're strongly advised to check with venues before setting out and you'll find links to websites, phone numbers and email addresses in our listings.

Sadly Monte Carlo Opera has cancelled its 24 November performance of Carmen as well as the Portes Ouvertes on 13 November. However the other two performances, on 20 and 22 November, are now free of charge for Monegasques and residents. To reserve your seat contact ticket[at]opera.mc, +377 98 06 28 28 or +377 99 99 30 00 from Saturday. If you've bought a ticket, you'll be reimbursed.

Pierre-Louis Renou is the new DG of the Fairmont now that Xavier Rugeroni has retired. In the hotel's Nobu restaurant, chef Wagner Spadacio's winter menu includes a creation that uses the toro cut of tuna, topped with sea urchin flesh, a touch of truffle and gold leaf. I'm sure it'll go down well with the glitterati.

In brief

The Cinema des Beaux Arts is closed temporarily.

CREM clubhouse remains open to members, but you'll have to leave at 19:30.

The Mairie is going ahead with a reduced version of the Christmas Village, so long as the Covid situation doesn't deteriorate.

And finally...

Remember that masks are now compulsory in public spaces, and you're advised to wear one at home when someone who isn't part of your household visits. Whatever you believe about Covid-19, please be sensitive to the feelings of others.
