The Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2018 will take place from November 13 to December 2 at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo. Since its creation in 2006, the festival has received the patronage of S.A.S. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and we wish to thank Him for the attention He continues to kindly extend to him. This festival will allow us, this year again, to discover and rediscover the greatest jazz stars, and talents of today, in this wonderful place, temple of music and creation for more than a century. The program of this 13th edition shows that jazz is always diverse and freedom-loving: open to all musical trends, always leaving room for tradition, without being immobile, inspired by all the music of the world, and making the share beautiful creation.
