Festival des Nuits du Château de la Moutte 2013
SAINT-TROPEZ  •  Château de la Moutte  •  Ongoing

The Nights of the Château de la Moutte festival was created in 1975 by Annette Troisier de Diaz (1917-2005),  grand-daughter of Emile Ollivier, prime minister of France under Napoleon III who acquired the famous chateau and its elegant parc outside Saint-Tropez in 1860. The chateau's family library was of particular interest to historians and musicologists of the Second Empire.

Among the highlights of this chic summer rendez-vous on the French Riviera:

Pianists Nikolaï Lugansky and Boris Berezovsky; opera singers Léa Trommenschlager (soprano),  Marie Kalinine (mezzo-soprano), Damien Pass (baritone), Anna Kasyan (soprano), 
Szabolcs Brickner (tenor); flamenco dancers Andrés Peña & Pilar Ogalla; the Biréli Lagrène Quartet and the jazz tango accordeon of Richard Galliano.
