On summer evenings, the arches surrounding the opera house become the setting for the Peristyle Festival, a succession of concerts from June to August, bringing together all kinds of music from all over the world.
In previous years, the festival has welcomed the Abozekri trio, the Anbessa Orchestra from New York, Brazilian Joao Selva, the Lyon-based collective Ti’Kaniki, the king of the Colombian accordion Carmelo Torres, Ajate from Japan and many others.
The 2020 festival has some great surprises in store, so come along on June 11.
The full programme will be announced in the spring.
In the meantime, take a look back at music and images from previous festivals…
