The Miser – French Theatre

Superb adaptation of “L’Avare” (“The Miser”) in the commedia dell’arte style with singing, dancing, pantomime, music and improvisations. While ignoring the wants and needs of all those around him, even his own children, the wealthy Harpagon believes he can purchase conjugal bliss for his dotage. But in a typically Molière-esque twist, his plans are ruined and his only consolation is buried in a box… The cast and audience have huge fun with the roles of Harpagon, Frosine, Valère, all colourful characters, illustrating timeless themes including money, intolerance, limitless profit, the loss of human relationships, sexism, and more. All the modernity of Molière is concentrated in this classic play.

From Thursday March 30 to Saturday April 1at 20:30 and Sunday, April 2 at 16:30 at the Théâtre des Muses. Discover more and reserve your tickets here.

George Condo – Humanoids – Exhibition

For George Condo, “the Humanoid is not a science fiction monster, but a depiction that uses traditional methods to bring a person’s inner emotions to the surface”. Over the course of eight sections, the exhibition traces the continuity of a profuse body of work that ranges from “space beings” to Who’s Who, from Guido Reni to Bugs Bunny. Featuring specially produced paintings, the exhibition offers a glimpse of the artist’s process of invention – as crazy as it is erudite – of humanoids. From Friday, March 31 to Sunday October 1, 2023 at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Paloma. Discover more about the exhibition here. Read more about George Condo in our article here.

Arnold Turboust – Concert

The musician began his career with legendary group Marquis de Sade and went on to collaborate with Etienne Daho, Brigitte Fontaine, and Jacno.

On Friday, March 31 at 19:00 at the Médiathèque de Monaco – Bibliothèque Louis Notari. Free entry. Discover more here.
