The opening night of the Monaco Yacht Show sees a gala charity dinner hosted by Prince Albert II of Monaco on the terraces of the Opéra Garnier. Dinner will be cooked by a Michelin-starred chef, followed by performances from international artists and an auction of one-off experiences, collectable pieces and works of art (last year’s lots included an explorer-accompanied trip for two to Antarctica, a walk-on role in Leonardo DiCaprio’s next film and works of art by Jeff Koons, Francis Bacon, Gursky and Picasso). Individual tickets start at €8,000, tables at €75,000. Net profits from the ticket sales and auction will go to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s eight marine conservation programmes.
