Let your mind wander as the notes echo from the Saint-Michel Archange Basilica forecourt with views of the Mediterranean during the 70th Menton Music Festival. The Quality Hôtel Méditerranée Menton, a stone's throw from the festival, unveils the schedule and surprises this international music event has in store.
The festival is run by Menton Council and Tourist Information from July 25th to August 13th 2019. The world's biggest classical artists come to perform on this fabulous baroque stage every year on the Côte d’Azur.
The Menton Music Festival was founded in 1950 by the Hungarian performer André Böröcz who fell in love with the forecourt at the Saint-Michel Archange Basilica and its picture-perfect setting. This magical spot perched above the sea whisks you away to a world of enchantment and adventure. The unspoilt nature of this open-air theatre makes it one of the most prestigious and oldest classical music festivals in Europe.
