Get Ready for an Explosive Summer in Monaco
The Principality of Monaco is in celebration following the recent accolade by Trip Advisor’s 2010 Travellers Choice Awards which voted Monte Carlo as its number one Worldwide and European destination.
Monaco is celebrating summer in style, of course, and is providing a spectacular backdrop for world-renowned firework artists that represent their country in the International Fireworks to Music competition. This year the Ukraine, Italy, USA and Spain are competing with their fireworks, music and choreography against the stunning background canvas of Monaco for four nights during July and August.
The gates of the Princes Palace are rarely opened, apart from the special season of summer concerts performed by the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. The courtyard has been the magical setting for this annual series of concerts since 1959, providing exceptional acoustics and guest conductors who aspire to perform in this special venue. The seven gala open-air concerts during July and August revisit a classical repertoire including many well-loved composers such as Verdi, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.
High profile musical stars will be flocking to Monaco this summer to perform at the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival that runs from 9th July until 28th August. To name a few Elton John, Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Vanessa Paradis, Julio Iglesias, Jamiroquai and Mika will be taking to the stage of the "Salle des Etoiles" (the room of stars) for a series of open-air dinner shows.For more information on the schedule for the Sporting Monte Carlo festival visit www.en.sportingsummerfestival.com
