Website of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo (English version):
Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo
From the website:
"By recreating, in 1985, the Ballets of Monte-Carlo, H.R.H. the Princess of Hannover enabled the Principality to provide itself with one of the most prestigious companies in the world. Far from being a myth or an image of legend, the Ballets of Monte-Carlo are a reality, a community of men and women of today, ready to share their efforts, their experiences, their talents and their emotions..... Our association was formed to help these young artists, to show them at their full value.....For a few years now, the association has been supporting dancers in their transition into a new professional career.
There is also an "Association of the Friends of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo", led by Elisabeth Bréaud.

In 1909, Diaghilev brought a ballet company to France, then to Monaco. He died in 1929, and the company dissolved. A new company evolved in 1932, but was disbanded in the early 1950s, refounded in 1954, and vanished after the 1962-63 season.
Last week Caroline attended at a performance of MONTECARLO BALLETS at SALLE GARNIER, MONACO. You can see a short video in Centre de Presse.

Princess Caroline and her charity "Jeune J'écoute".
"Jeune J'écoute" was founded in 1981 by a group of people wanting to help young persons under 26 years of age who are in difficulty. Princess Caroline became the Honorary President of the charity.
What started as a phoneline for young people, became a charity which employs educators and psychologists, and it supports about 100 people per year.
The office of the charity is at Quai Albert Ier in Monaco.
