The Monte-Carlo Ballet

During the festive period, the Grimaldi Forum is hosting Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo for a series of performances created by Jean-Christophe Maillot, who celebrates his 60th birthday this year.Friday 11 and Saturday December 12 , at 8pm and Sunday December 13, 2020, at 4pm Grimaldi Forum Monaco - Salle Prince Pierre

A solemn mass for seven dancers, Dov’è la Luna explores darkness and light in search of the bodies hiding there. This piece journeys into the realm that lies between life and death, where a second birth awaits. The second work, Core Meu, is a meeting between the dazzling Tarantella of Apulia and the technical prowess of a classical dance company at the pinnacle of its powers.
