Christmas Concerts at Versailles

Music, Classical and opera
Concerts au Château de Versailles

For Christmas every year the Château de Versailles hosts festive classical concerts in the castle’s elaborate 15th century Chappelle Royale. On December 20, an orchestra and choir will perform Bach’s ‘Christmas Oratario’ of six joyful Christmas cantatas that trace the nativity story. On December 21, the Hugelas ensemble will perform ‘Le Mystère de Noël’, a grouping of festive pieces spanning five centuries. This wide-reaching repertoire features 14 pieces performed by eight singers and five musicians and was brought together with the help of great music schools in France, England, Flanders, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
