Musical journeys

WEEK-END IN MILAN

Around 40 supporters of Festival de la Vézère took a trip to Milan between the 13th and the 15th of May 2017.

During this journey, and with the explainations of a tour guide, all of them had the opportunity to discover Milan through visits to its Duomo, the Sforza’s castle, Sant’Ambrogio church and Brera Picture Gallery. Then the trip climaxed with a performance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Scala.

Some of the people who took part to the journey shared a few thoughts about their experience :

« I thought that the evening at the Scala was extroardinary : the room, the actors performance… I was absolutely amazed. Furthermore, the city itself is magnificent.  » Odette M.

« Thank you again for this wonderful trip to Milan which culminated with the performance of Don Giovanni at the Scala, amazing by all standards. Its memory will remain forever. Also kudos to our very cultured tour guide who was able to capture our attention thanks to his knowledge about Italy in general and Milan more specifically. We are looking forward to knowing next year’s destination.  » Philippe C.

« The Don Giovanni opera performance at the Scala was simply marvelous, thanks to its staging as well as its set and performance. Thanks to the tour guide for his general culture and his knowledge of Milan.  » Martine B.
