A part of La Virée classique 2023

Don’t speak to strangers! If Beatrice, the main character in A Fiddler’s Tale, had heeded this advice, she would have saved herself a lot of trouble. Echoing Stravinsky’s famous Soldier’s Tale, legendary trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis puts the Faust myth into an American context where swing, blues and the Charleston go hand in hand.

August 16th to 20th

La Virée classique 2023 celebrates its 10th anniversary. Since its creation, the Virée has become an unmissable summer event. The mission of the Virée classique is to promote the discovery of music in all its forms, to strengthen social ties in the community, to contribute to the development of the sensitivity and curiosity of music lovers, and to encourage amateur musicians and young emerging artists. This mission has been fulfilled successfully year after year.

For this 10th edition, 26 indoor concerts and a hundred or so free activities for the whole family will allow you to explore a multitude of musical universes, from the great classical works to Balinese music, as well as jazz, film music, music from the Balkans or the Middle East. From different cultures, this music will evoke memories of travel that will lead you into the fantastic world of tales.
