Classical music under the stars

Cannes is not the only place to offer musical nights this summer on the French Riviera. Three other festivals along the coast also give you the opportunity to relax in a beautiful setting to the sounds of fine music. There are festivals taking place in Nice, Monaco, and Menton.

“There all is order and beauty, Luxury, peace, and pleasure.” Those beautiful verses from Charles Baudelaire’s Invitation to the voyage perfectly summarize the delightful concert series the city of Nice will hold from the 21st of July to the 14th of August. Every summer, far away from the summer crowd, the cloisters of the beautiful Franciscan Monastery of Cimiez welcome some of the best classical musicians to offer year after year a beautiful and eclectic program. The 2012 edition will feature works by Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Chopin among others, as well as a Bel Canto night.
