A star-studded international line-up will support the Prince’s Carabinieri at their Bicentennial Concert, which will take place 8 pm at Rainier III Auditorium on Friday, March 10.
The concert features an exceptional eclectic programme, with the participation of Dee Dee Bridgewater, Biréli Lagrène, Camille and Julie Berthollet, Thomas Vaccari (The Voice 2) and Nicolas Krauze, who will be accompanied by a string ensemble of The Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, added to the Prince’s Carabinieri Orchestra as a Big Band Jazz band.
Presenter Stéphane Bern will talk with the various artists at the end of their performance.
The concert sold out – 1,000 seats – within nine days. However, the evening will be entirely broadcast live on Monaco Info and Monaco Channel.
