French Culture Season
2018/19 FRENCH CULTURE SEASON
12 from October - 07 from June
Once again, the French Culture Season offers you a broad programme of activities, with music, theatre, exhibitions and cinema, among others.
The 2018-19 French Culture Season programme is both broad and diverse, with over 15 activities in a variety of disciplines, all designed to appeal to a wide audience.
Highlights in the music category include performances by “Les Désaxés” as part of the programme for Andorra Sax Fest 2019 (20 February), with their new show called the “Supersaxshow”, as well as the L.E.J. trio, who were awarded the “Victòria de la música” award for best breakout group and the Crystal Globe Award for the Best Female Performer in 2017.
The theatre category was marked by the return of the Comédie-Française. It re-emerged after a three-year absence with the performance of “Bajazet”, a contemporary tragedy by Jean Racine, directed by Eric Ruf, the director of the Comédie-Française (12 March).
The season also includes Andorra la Vella's Festa de la Joventut (Festival of the Youth) (1 June) with workshops, courses and circus shows, as part of the “Arts de la rue” event.
Another important date to take note of is the transmission of the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival. You’ll be able to follow the famous “Montée des marches” live from the film festival with the greatest media coverage in the world and attend the screening of a film awarded in 2018 (Illa Carlemany Cinema, 14 May).
The MW Electricity Museum will be celebrating its 10th anniversary, and will host one of this year’s most special offerings, the “Ça chauffe pour la planète!” (“The planet is heating up!”) exhibition. It features a selection of some thirty newspaper sketches, taken from the book of the same name, edited by the Association “Cartooning for Peace”. It’s a world première that you’ll be able to see from 10 January to 31 July.
