Prince’s Orchestre des Carabiniers to open Edinburgh festival

Prince’s Orchestre des Carabiniers to open Edinburgh festival

By Staff Writer - August 3, 2017

The Orchestre des Carabiniers du Prince have been invited to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, where they will play Friday night in the presence of HSH Prince Albert.

Prince Albert has been invited to give the festival’s opening salute.

The tattoo takes place every August, this year from the 4th until the 26th, as part of the Edinburgh Festival, and each year has a unique theme. For this 68th edition, it’s honouring Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.

The first official tattoo took place in 1950 and some 6,000 spectators watched eight items on display. In 2017, 8,800 spectators are expected watch the event every night on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle as 1,200 performers – some 250 pipers and drummers, British Army personnel alongside other groups from the Commonwealth and military forces from France, India and the US – take to the stage.

And for the first-time Japan will be represented as the Japan Ground Self-Defence Force Central Band performs.

For one night only, on August Friday August 4, the Orchestre des Carabiniers du Prince will accompany guests from the Principality to share with the audience some of Monaco’s magic. The band documented Wednesday’s rehearsal on their Facebook page.

Some of the programme will be recorded by BBC and broadcast worldwide at a later date. Despite unpredictable skies, no performance at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has ever been cancelled.
