Monet & Friends – Life, Light & Colour had its world premiere at the Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park, Sydney on Friday, March 12.
“The team at Grande Experiences are absolutely thrilled to world premiere our latest show; Monet & Friends – Life, Light & Colour on home soil. Produced in the same immersive multi-sensory format as the hugely successful Van Gogh Alive, this very new and unique experience will captivate and enthral audiences young and old as we enjoy some of the colourful works of art from the French Masters of the 19th century, combined with a wonderful musical score and special aromas permeating throughout the venue,” said Bruce Peterson – founder & owner, Grande Experiences.
“The experience pays homage to Claude Monet and the Impressionists painters of the mid-19th century right through to the early 20th century, exploring not only the paintings themselves but the history of the Impressionist movement amid the social and political turbulence of the time. Impressionism remains one of the most fascinating and well-loved movements in the history of modern art.” – Bruce Peterson
