The Baroque festival “The BaroQuiales” organize every year a Baroque Summer Course with international teachers and professional musicians, featuring a final concert as part of the festival program. 
 
Join us this year in the UNESCO Village of Sospel (French Alpes-Maritimes) to perform the Purcell’s masterpiece “Dido & Aeneas”. This opera will be staged outdoors in the beautiful and unique Baroque Provençal courtyard of the Cathedral St Michel in Sospel.

We select 24 singers for the Opera Atelier vocal ensemble.
