Greek mythology and A Midsummer Night’s Dream inspire spring programme at Académie Rainier III

Académie Rainier III

Drawing inspiration from works such as Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen and William Skapespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as well as the vast anthology of classical Greek myths, the Académie Rainier III has unveiled a spell-binding programme of the events for the next three months. Here are some of the highlights.

Starting on Friday 5th April at 8pm, the Academy’s students will be showcasing their talents at the Théâtre des Variétés through a series of musical and choral performances inspired by Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen and William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The harp class, led by Frédérique Camberling, will be opening the event.

On Wednesday 15th May at 6pm, the Children’s Choir will be taking to the stage at the Auditorium Rainier III to present a musical narrative based on Greek mythology. The story of Pysche, created by Julien Joubert, will explore the themes of love and transformation.

The traditional Gala de l’Académie Rainier III is scheduled for Wednesday 12th June at 8pm at the Auditorium Rainier III. It will feature performances by advanced students, who will be accompanied by the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra.

Then, the school’s theatre students will be presenting their end-of-cycle examination pieces at the Théâtre Princesse Grace on Wednesday 19th June at 7pm.

The season will conclude at the Fort Antoine on Friday 28th June at 8pm, with a jazz and contemporary fusion performance entitled From Aerophonics to Big Band Jazz.

All events are free of charge, but prior registration is required.
