Tickets now on sale for the Académie Princesse Grace Gala

The Académie Princesse Grace Gala is an opportunity for the public to watch the rising dance stars of tomorrow perform in one of Monaco’s most prestigious establishments: the Salle Garnier. Tickets for the June-time event are now available.  

It is Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo’s late season highlight and has been a feature of the Monaco dance calendar since 2009.  

Each June, the Académie Princesse Grace Gala showcases the talents of the dance school’s students and are the culmination of years of effort and training. For many of the dancers who take to the stage, the event is a chance to say farewell to the Principality before graduating and moving on to professional careers in the international world of dance.  

An array of dance styles is to be expected at the 2024 edition, from classic to contemporary, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 

There will be two separate performances this year, both at the Salle Garnier of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo. The first will be held on 21st June at 7.30pm and the second will take place on 23rd June at 3pm.  

Tickets are on sale in the Atrium of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, which can be visited between from 10am to 5.30pm on Tuesdays through to Saturdays.

Prince Albert II tours ‘Ferrari F1 in Monaco: History and Victories’ exhibit

Prince Albert II has been given a personal tour of a new exhibition all about Ferrari’s Formula 1 legacy that is currently being hosted by The Prince of Monaco’s Car Collection museum in Port Hercule. 

With the Monaco Grand Prix just around the corner, a race that will see one of the Principality’s home-grown talents, Charles Leclerc, behind the wheel of a Ferrari, The Prince of Monaco’s Car Collection is celebrating the opening of a brand-new Scuderia Ferrari exhibit. 

Prince Albert II headed down to the museum on the Route de la Piscine with his nephew, Louis Ducruet, to take a closer look at the incredible array of legendary cars that make up the ‘Ferrari F1 in Monaco: History and Victories’ show on 9th May. 

The exhibition explores and retraces the extraordinary history of one of the most well-known car brands connected with Formula 1. 

It begins in 1950, the year that Scuderia Ferrari made its debut in Formula 1, with the car that was famously driven by Alberto Ascari. He finished in P2, making this race the first of many more podiums to come for the brand. In fact, a Ferrari driver has won nine races here in Monaco.

Scuderia Ferrari is the only team that has appeared in all of the Formula 1 seasons since 1950. The prancing horse of the Maranello marque has become a staple symbol of the iconic championship, with big names such as Michael Schumacher, Niki Lauda, Gilles Villeneuve and Sebastian Vettel among the line-up of drivers over the years. Many of the single-seaters driven by these legends of the sport feature in the exhibition. 

Moving to more recent times, visitors can also find the SF90 driven by Monaco’s own Charles Leclerc at the show. This car joined the Prince’s Collection three years ago. 

‘Ferrari F1 in Monaco: History and Victories’ will be open to the public until 31st August.
