Special Saint Patrick's Day events take place in March in various venues across the Principality : the Prncess Grace Irish Library, Cathedral, Chapelle de la Visitation, Théâtre des Variétés and Cinéma du Sporting.
March 17th 2021 we were honored with the presence of HSH Prince Albert II and His children Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella for a musical performance by students from L'Académie de Musique Rainier III, dramatic readings by actors from the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society and afterwards specially baked apple tarts with shamrocks were presented made by the students of the Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco.
In the past the public has enjoyed performances by Les Petits Chanteurs and La Maîtrise de Monaco (Boys' Choir and Cathedral Choir), students from the Académie de Musique et de Théâtre Prince Rainier III (performing music and songs from Princess Grace's personal collection of Irish-American sheet music held in the Library), dancers from the Académie de Danse Classique Princesse Grace, the Pallas Quartet (Cork School of Music) and Tom Cullivan. In 2000, children from Rostrevor in Northern Ireland performed the Gaelic opera An Iarlais at the Théâtre Princesse Grace.
We will keep you posted about our plans for Saint Patrick's Day in 2022.
