Description

If you enjoy listening to magical opera performances in a dreamy location on a beautiful island off the coast of Brittany, then the Belle-Ile Festival is the right place for you. Since 1998, the festival has been presenting numerous refined opera performances and concerts in the magical setting of Belle-Île-en-Mer. The historic Citadel Vauban has played host to performances of such works as Don Giovanni, Bluebeard's Castle, The Tales of Hoffmann, Madame Butterfly, Carmen, Falstaff, Don Pasquale, The Magic Flute, La Bohème, The Barber of Seville and Tosca among others, among others. The festival is well-known for presenting up and coming international singers from such prestigious houses like New York's Metropolitan Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, L'Opèra de Paris, La Scala, Milan and London's Covent Garden. Of course, in between performances, you can thoroughly enjoy Belle-Ile’s natural beauty alongside the other tourists attracted to this corner of the world for the light, the rugged environment and the superb beaches.
