Venice Vivaldi Versailles



An exceptional festival in Versailles

From 24 June to 17 July 2011, the Château de Versailles hosts the Venice Vivaldi Versailles festival that will link up three splendours of Europe’s Baroque period.

Venice, the romantic “Serenissima”, Vivaldi, the composer of genius, and Versailles, the legendary palace created by Louis XIV and the greatest artists of his time, will be reunited again for this truly exceptional event.

Versailles welcomes Vivaldi and Venice for a series of unforgettable musical evenings, worthy follow-ups of the memorable festivities devised by Louis XIV. The Château de Versailles and Naïve have come together to produce this great event in Versailles, to mark the completion of the publication of recordings of the entire works of Vivaldi.

On the programme, Venetian Festivities on the Grand Canal, the Carnival of Venice in the Orangerie, cycles de concerts by prestigious musicians in the rooms of the Château and in the Royal Opera, variations on the 4 Seasons by Vivaldi...
