— Early Music Concert Series —

Theatrical pastimes with Baroque music

This series of original programmes combines a choice selection of courtly art, including music, dance, acting and poetry. The ensemble Plaisirs de Musique and international soloists are performing on the stage of the Baroque theatre in Valtice (Feldsberg). The event can be combined with a guided tour of the château and a visit to the Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

All the concerts are held in the château’s theatre (Wheelchair accessible) . Just before the main staircase up to the château, go around the château to the left (see map). Tickets are sold in the foyer of the theatre.
