New in Monaco: Theatre des Muses
The new Theatre des Muses opens its door after three years building work, and is set to be a popular fixture on the Monaco arts scene.
Enjoy Theatre des Muses in elegant surrounds
The 100-seat theatre has just launched its winter programme. It promises an exciting first season, featuring stage plays and drama education
for all ages.
The venue, a former bakery, is privately owned and run by Anthea Sogno, an accomplished actress, playwright, and theatre director.
The Monegasque artiste and her team have created a truly wonderful space that is delightfully bijou, yet retains a grandeur befitting of a Monaco venue.
Anthea Sogno stars in her own adaptation of a Victor Hugo classic
Sogno is eager to make her unique theatre work and is clearly filled with the passion to do so. She said: “I love theatre because it is a ‘cottage’ where everything exceptional is permitted, where everything is possible, and where the artist remains free.”
Theatre des Muses was officially opened by Prince Albert of Monaco on 11 September. Sogno performed a solo piece for the Prince and her audience. Her play told the story of the venue’s amazing incarnation.
Sogno said: “I first met the Prince while riding an elephant at the Monaco circus. I said to him way back then, ‘The next time I will greet you it will be on the stage of my own theatre!’”
The dream came true for her, and Theatre des Muses is definitely fit for a Prince and a principality.
Welcome Monagasques, to the newest theatre in town!
