This is the thread dedicated to the 36th International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo

First information can be found at the official site montecarlofestival.mc.
And this is the new colourful 2012 flyer/poster!


Following the Circus Festival there will be a new, special event - the first Festival "New Generation",
a competition for young circus artists. The winners will be awarded with the "Gold Junior", "Silver Junior"
and the "Bronze Junior" referring to the awards given at the original festival.

Princess Stephanie will act as President, Pauline Ducruet will be the President of the Jury.

Just two more days and the annual festival will start again!


Princess Stephanie with Pauline Ducruet and together with several artists today, January 17,
presented the festival to the press:

And last week Stephanie has visited a circus museum and has given an interview about the
circus festival and her involvement:


** nicematin: Stéphanie : « Je fais partie de la grande famille du cirque » ** translation **

** Pic 1 ** Pic 2 ** Pic 3 ** Pic 4 ** Pic 5 ** Pic 6 **

Here are some google translated parts in case the article won't stay that way - as we already
know nicematin articles often vanish...


Quote:
Immediately after this year's Festival will be held New Generation, a festival open to young talents. The desire is to create a pool of artists around the festival?

Yes, it is logical for the festival. It was a bit of our vocation to support a festival for young artists who will be moved on the track alike. It will be a real show, with numbers of animals performed by children, which is unique. A troupe of acrobats of Monaco and the school students trail of blue, our only regional school that does a great job, will also attend. Perhaps some of these artists will return one day to the "big" festival.

Your daughter Pauline will chair the jury of the New Generation. It symbolizes an affiliation of enthusiasts in your family?

She had the education and the circus follows me often in the shows. We do not loupons Gruss circus Medrano or when they come to Nice. Pauline loves the traditional numbers. Sometimes the most modern services, please him more than me. It surprises me, because his trial and his eyes are already very sharp, probably due to the fact that she grew up in the circus. She has friends in this family, it was known as a child. As I who coasted from childhood Bouglione Joseph, Geraldine Knie or Flavio Togni.

You feel fully part of this big family circus?

I have a real affection for them as cousins. I do not lie when I say that I am part of this large family in which my children and I can always count on. We have the same values, those people loyal and rights of self-transcendence to give dreams to people. The best quality of the circus, it's true. It leaves his problems at home, it does not complain. In a sanitized world, computerized, self-centered, the circus continues with its values, is what saves us. And I would fight all my life to defend the true values.

These are values ​​that you carry to lead the team during the festival?

On Monday, we will have three days of hell (laughs)! In three days, you have to climb two performances of four hours, completely different. In any other circus, it's three weeks of rehearsal minimum. But we are fortunate to have a team of great professionals, whom I respect greatly and I can not thank enough. Boys track, stage, orchestra, technicians, I draw them a big tip of the hat! Without them we could not do that.

I'm sooooo looking forward to this, which I do every year, especially the new addition they will be adding this year!

The only thing I'm a bit sad about is the kids keep getting older every year and eventually they no longer attend the Circus (aka the Casiragh Trio). :(

Here's hoping Stephanie's kids stay children at heart forever, just like their grandfather Prince Rainier & mother Princess Stephanie, and never leave the circus, instead attend every year.

At least little Princess Alexandra is still a child (12), so I hope to see her again this year, as well as Camille, whom is still only 13. They have at least one or two more years to go, as IIRC Charlotte stopped attending after she turned 13. :(

It starts today, yeah!

Thanks, too, for the info. about Charlotte (must've missed her that year). However, I do recall Pierre and his long-time lovely Italian girlfriend attending last year as well, but I only remember the children (i.e. Princess Alexandra & Camille).

Thanks for the info! :)

Hopefully the youngest children will attend as welll (i.e. 12 yr. old Princess Alexandra & 13 yr. old Camille), and hopefully Pauline will be there alongside her mom.

ps: can't wait till Albert & Charlene have their own children, a new generation of young Grimaldis to attend the Circus!

Princess caroline did never attend the festival circus untill the death of her father the prince Rainier of Monaco, we never saw neither Andréa and charlotte. Apart when they were young at the times of prince Rainier
Last year, there were only the princess stephanie, Pauline and the prince Albert. at the opening of the festival
At the second program which took place two days after, Pierre Casiraghi came with his girlfriend and princess Alexandra.
At the gala evening, there were stephanie,Pauline ,Albert and Charlène
Last year, Camille did not attend at all these evenings
I think Camille will attend this year to the evenings. I think Alexandra will attend with her brother Pierre at one of the evening. but it could change this year and we could see all the family of Monaco

I don't care how many family members will attend as long as some do attend.
It's time the Monaco threads rock the house again
(ok, I would specially love to see Albert and Charlene)

Not quite correct (I guess you've meant "after the death" and not "until", haven't you?) - both Princess
Caroline and Charlotte attended the festival in 2008

Ooops, I was overexcited and thought it started today.

By the way, GORGEOUS pics of Pauline, what a natural beauty. She looks even better without makeup, and also looks about 10 years old without it as well. What a heartbreaker she's going to be, and is I'm sure.

BRING ON THE CIRCUS!!!!

Stéphanie is the president of the festival of ciecus. She is the person who see what people would be in the vip box, it is not the palace neither the members of the family who do.
to day there will be Albert and Charlene, they are the main persons of the family Pauline, stéphanie of course and perhaps Camille
to morrow, ther will be an another evening, perhaps there will be the other members of the family.(pierre, charlotte, alexandra)
At least, there will be the gala.
Pauline workes a lot with her mother at the festivals , she is the president of the young generation of circus, it will be unfair for her to see all the medias focused on Charlotte if she is present at an evening because she has an affair wuth Gad Rl Maleh

I do not think that Pauline seeks for fame. Their mother has always kept them far away from celebrity lights

All right, WONDERFUL PICS (never quote noticed before how Pauline & Stephanie have the same exquisite eyes)!

And those trophies are superb, makes me want to win one, seriously you can tell that a lot of thought & artistry went into the making of each one.

BRAVO!
