Concerts in the Parc Floral; music amidst the greenery
A leading venue for music in Paris, each year the Parc Floral welcomes several fabulous festivals catering to a wide range of musical tastes. From June 30th to July 22nd the Paris Jazz Festival takes up residence in this beautiful green space, for cool afternoons and swinging evenings. From August 11th to September 2nd it’s the turn of classical music lovers to bask in the park’s gorgeous surroundings, thanks to the Festival Classique au Vert.
Outdoor cinema in La Villette; what if we sang?
From July 18th to August 19th, the Parc de la Villette is the venue for a season of outdoor screenings of movies with the common theme of the song. The big screen looms over the big lawn and, as soon as night falls, movie buffs flock to spend evenings in the cool night air watching a well-chosen selection of films ranging from Hollywood blockbusters to cult items and fondly-remembered features from yesteryear.
Opera at the Invalides; long live Carmen
Experiencing opera in the open-air is one of the immensely pleasurable highlights of the summer, and this year Paris offers you nothing less than the setting of the Invalides in which to enjoy this art form al fresco! This is a wonderful opportunity to attend a performance of Bizet’s Carmen in one of the capital’s most magnificent locations.
