A sentimental swell
Every summer, Belle-Île-en-Mer acts as the perfect backdrop for the Lyrique en Mer festival, dedicated to some of the world’s greatest opera composers. Verdi, Mozart, Puccini, Rossini… Make the most of these operatic treasures, shining even more brightly with a sprinkling of sea spray. And don’t miss the sacred music concerts or the cocktail-concerts, where you can have a drink and a chat with artists after the show. Over the years the festival has welcomed international singers from some of the world’s most highly regarded opera houses, including the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Paris Opera, La Scala in Milan and London’s Covent Garden. Don Giovanni, Carmen, Madame Butterfly and the Barber of Seville have already been performed here. This has to be a dream holiday for any opera-lover.
