Carcassonne Festival 2014
All the arts in Carcassonne
The Carcassonne Festival is a major national and even international event. Every year, prestigious sites of historical significance and character (such as the Grand Théâtre Antique, the Saint-Nazaire basilica and the courtyard of the château of Carcassonne) become a stage for dancers, singers and actors for some top quality performances.
The Festival brings theatre, opera, dance and concerts to Carcassonne like a breath of fresh air throughout June and the whole of July, maintaining over the years a high standard which in turn sets a standard for the city's cultural establishments.These scenic locations add a new dimension to the performances.
The 2014 edition will feature, among others artists, Elton John, the famous English singer.
Only the best perform at the Festival de Carcassonne, artists who are nationally and internationally renowned: this is often the only performance date in France for some stars. A loyal crowd returns again and again to these events during the summer season.
The exciting and varied line-up for this festival will once again feature a perfect cocktail of jazz, classical music, dance and theatre.
Don't miss out!
