There’s what happens on-stage, in the spotlight; and what happens off-stage, behind the scenes.
Who hasn’t dreamed of going behind the scenes of a theatre venue?
This is the experience offered by the exhibition Monaco On Stage – 100 years of concerts in Monaco, imagined by the Direction of the Affaires Culturelles de Monaco and realized with Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, gives visitors the chance of going to the other side of the mirror.
The project is curated by Alex Jaffray, a composer, producer and music journalist, and Rudy Sabounghi, a set designer for major European theatres. Monaco has had a special relationship with music for almost a century. Famous names such as Joséphine Baker, Charles Aznavour, Lady Gaga and Prince have all performed on Monte-Carlo’s legendary stages.
This immersive exhibition features corridors lined with autographs, reconstructions of dressing rooms and new content on the stars who have performed in Monaco. Visitors are able to discover music from the “inside”, listen to guitars playing iconic riffs, hear a surprising, original version of the famous song “My Way”, experience the magic of going on stage, and discover the connection that brings together Ella Fitzgerald and Alicia Keys, or Céline Dion, Mariah Carey and Joséphine Baker. A unique experience!
