With such a connection to the region, it seems only right that music icon Elton John has chosen Monaco as the seat of his 50th anniversary concert on 6th December.

The legendary Philharmonic Orchestra of Vienna is making an appearance in the early New Year on 12th January. Young Venezuelan prodigy Gustavo Dudamel – a man known for his creativity and willingness to embrace new technologies –will be directing the orchestra.
Also coming in 2018 is the great summer exhibi-tion: between 7th July and 9th September, the Grimaldi Forum will honour 2,500 years of gold-smithing in Ancient Egypt.
