La Belle – Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo

Dive into a beautiful yet ferocious psychoanalytical study of the famous fairytale by Perrault. Jean-Christophe Maillot has striven to break through the sugary Disney crust of La Belle to create a ballet that speaks directly to our inner child, our fears and our desires. This production introduces us to the lesser-known second act of Perrault’s tale, in which the heroine’s awakening and her wedding to the Prince are not the end of the story. This part is dark and terrifying: the Princess, now Queen, and her children are threatened by her stepmother, the Ogress Carabosse.

From Wednesday, April 26 to Saturday, April 29 at 19:30 and Sunday, April 30 at 15:00 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. Discover more and reserve your tickets here.

Rally Father – Daughter – Event

Since 2017, the Rallye Père-Fille™ event has brought together fathers and daughters who love beautiful things: special attention to detail, welcoming tables, first-class hotels and meetings with other crews who share the same philosophy.

In 2023, the rally is changing. Not only because its logo is changing to distinguish it from the Rallye Père-Fils™ but also because the organisers are limiting the number of crews to 50. As for the cars, even if the rally is open to all makes, it will now be composed of 25 classic and 25 modern cars, the models also having to be all different. In addition, the competition will include two classifications, according to the classic or modern categories. More details here.

Sunday 30

Massimo Listri – Photographs – Exhibition

Until April 28, Moretti Fine Art is pleased to welcome you at the Monaco exhibition Massimo Listri – Photographs, a retrospective dedicated to Massimo Listri, a world-renowned artist of architectural photography.

The exhibition brings together a selection of 15 photographs that trace the artist’s long career, offering a complete panorama of his production, with large-scale works of considerable visual impact.

The images proposed are transcendental: his photos transmit an almost deafening silence, as if time had stopped, empty interiors illuminated by a perfect light that creates a surreal atmosphere and idealises their beauty. The same beauty that we find in Arno Brecker’s sculptures immortalised in these close-up portraits.

Massimo Listri’s photographic creations in homage to the most beautiful palaces, interiors, villas and extraordinary architectural works of all time. In 35 years and in collaboration with the most prestigious publishers in Europe and the United States, he has published over 80 books. Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 10:00 to 18:00, special opening on Saturday, April 15 and Sunday 16 at Moretti Fine Art. Discover more 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.

Looking Forward


During this lively presentation, U.K. psychotherapist and leadership coach Gavin Sharpe will share his top tips for learning how to say no, and leaving those people pleasing tendencies behind.

Research shows that the more difficulty we have saying no, the more likely we are to experience stress, burnout, and even depression. In fact, stress shrinks the brain. (Does that explain your partner?!)

Setting personal boundaries is one of the most essential tools for healthy livingIt also happens to be one of the hardest tools to deploy.

The digital age has blurred our boundaries. For example, more of us work from home, at least some of the time. Our work phones are often the same as our private phones. Basically, life today is complicated. The need to have healthy boundaries for healthy living is key.

So come along and learn the art of saying no and the skill in setting healthy boundaries.  You won’t leave disappointed and you might leave a little wiser!

On Thursday, May 4 at CREM. This event is free for CREM members and €25 for non-members. Places are limited. Please RSVP at info@crem.mc
