Grimaldi Forum Monaco - July 12 - September 23, 2007

© Time Life Pictures/Getty ImagesFor the first time, the Principality is staging an exhibition of international scope in homage to Princess Grace of Monaco, to mark the 25th anniversary of Her passing. In close collaboration with the Prince's Palace, which has made available personal items not previously displayed in public, this tribute retraces the various facets of Her life; from Grace Kelly, Hollywood star, to Princess of Monaco, devoted supporter of the Principality which adopted and loved her from the moment she set foot there in 1956.

"We want this exhibition to recreate the incomparable world of Princess Grace and evoke the reasons the memory of her persists in all our minds," explains exhibition curator Frédéric Mitterrand.

Covering 43,000 ft² at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, this unique exhibition immerses visitors in the memories of The Grace Kelly Years as if leafing through a photo album. Personal letters, private belongings, clothing, jewelry and fashion accessories, sound recordings, film excerpts, news reports and much more showcase Her remarkable life.

LE SONGE BY LES BALLETS DE MONTE-CARLO
A Jean-Christophe Maillot creation

July 19-21, 2007 at 8.30 pm
Salle des Princes, Grimaldi Forum Monaco

With the long-awaited re-staging of Le Songe byJean-Christophe Maillot, loosely based on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo invite you to share an enchanting midsummer experience in Monaco during the month of July.

This dream-like creation is designed for lovers and dreamers, who enjoy flirtingwith the improbable and tiptoeing along the brink of dreams…Jean-Christophe Maillot gives free and gleeful reign to the three driving forces of his imagination: theatre, music and dance.

Come and meet this “crowd of characters, stirred into a noisy, burlesque and acrobatic round, indulging in joyous practical jokes, licentious mischief, bad manners and even frivolous eroticism…” (La Pensée Russe, January 2006). “Abandon yourself to the lead of the imps and elves who people the universe of the fantastic…” (E.G. Vaccarino), and savor the pleasure of listening to a story in dance, “a talent that has become a label for Jean-Christophe Maillot” (Le Monde, December 2006).

Choreographer: Jean-Christophe Maillot.

Music: Félix Mendelssohn, Daniel Teruggi, Bertrand Maillot.

Set Design: Ernest Pignon-Ernest.

Costumes: Philippe Guillotel
