While waiting to attend Placido Domingo’s performance in Verdi’s La Traviata, the author explores the Choregies opera festival. He discusses and photographs the Theatre Antique d’Orange, the city, and the museum before watching the performance.
He then covers Les Recontres de la Photographie in Arles and discusses his enjoyment of the event in combination with the history of the place. He describes several of the photography exhibitions and rhapsodizes about the charm of the culture and architecture of Arles. He then gives recommendations for travel, places to stay, tourist attractions, and places to eat when visiting Provence, finishing up with a list of festivals and tourism websites for further research.
“This is the annual Chorégies, a world-renowned opera festival, and it is without question one of the events that any lover of France should aspire to experience.”
