( CAN, ENC, ORD, MAS, ALV, SJL, ESC )


Once again, the French Culture Season offers you a broad programme of activities, with music, theatre and cinema, among others.


The 2017 French Culture Season programme is both broad and diverse, with over 20 activities in a variety of disciplines, all designed to appeal to a wide audience.

Standout events in the music genre include performances by the Triple Entente trio, as part of the 2017 Sax Fest programme (21 April), and the Perpignan-Méditerranée Symphony Orchestra (25 May).

Another outstanding act on the bill is Michel Leeb, the popular comedian, actor and singer, who will be presenting “40 Year-Career”: his own personal homage to the loyal audiences that have followed him throughout his successful career. This special show can be experienced and enjoyed live at the conference centre in Andorra la Vella on 7 June.

Another date for your diary is the screening ofCyrano de Bergerac, as performed at the Comédie Française theatre in Paris. It will be shown at the Illa Carlemany cinema on 10 October.

The Claror Auditorium, meanwhile, will play host to another well-known figure in French theatre: on 9 November the actor Patrick Timsit is to performLe livre de ma mère, a text based on the eponymous work by Albert Cohen. Just a few days later, the same venue will be graced by the presence of composer, pianist and master of improvisation Jean-François Zygel, who will give a unique performance titledÇa reste entre nous, improvisations sur Bach, on 22 November. 

Don’t miss out!

Organisers: The French Embassy with the support of the Office of the French Co-Prince and the Andorran-French Alliance.
