Opening of the festival
"Saoû chante Mozart", a different festival. The only festival of this importance in France devoted to Mozart, it was created in 1989 by lovers of Wolfgang Amadeus and a village surrounded by rocks so far famous by its forest, a listed site for 70 years. While most of the concerts are devoted to Mozart, the chosen theme also includes many other composers. For nearly 30 years most all concerts have been sold out.
