Monaco Cathedral to host multi-sensory show to mark Prince Albert’s 60th

By Staff Writer - March 3, 2018


On the occasion of the 60th birthday of Prince Albert II, a multi-sensory show will be offered to Monegasques at the Cathedral of Monaco.

Presented in the form of five tableaux evoking alternately Earth, Water, Fire, Air and the Celestial, “Elements” has been conceived as a 30-minute sensory show immersing viewers in a succession of reconstructed environments projected onto the interior of the Cathedral.

With the Grand Organ as the centrepiece, acting as the guiding thread of illustration, all the musical entities of the Principality will be represented: the Petits Chanteurs, the Monte-Carlo Opera Choir and the singers of its International Professional Training Artist-Choir, the Monaco Brass formation from the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Children’s Choir from the Rainier III Music Academy, the Prince’s Carabiniers Orchestra, the Monoïkos Quartet and finally, a group of ten solo singers present especially for the occasion.

In total, some 150 professional musicians and singers of world renown, attached to the Principality and its service for many years, will take part in the settings of music images projected on the pillars, arches and walls of the Cathedral.

“Elements” will take place on Wednesday, March 14, at 8:30 pm and again at 9:45 pm. Tickets can be collected at the Monaco Town Hall, from March 1 to March 7, 8:30 am to 4 pm, on presentation of a Monaco identity card. Places limited.
