Easter musical in Eze in collaboration with the municipality of Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat

This new Easter Musical event "will undoubtedly awaken the interest and passion of the public, because the Ezasques and Saint-Jeannois have the music in their hearts"

The creative emotion deriving from the Ezaschi landscapes that have stimulated the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche will also inspire many artists, painters, writers and musicians. Eze was naturally inclined to welcome, in collaboration with the municipality of Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat, a prestigious event like Les Pâques musicis.

This first edition will take us on a journey between Vivaldi's Italy with Le Quattro Stagioni and the charm of Andalusian nights.

The gourmet side will not be forgotten with menus specially composed by the chef of Les Terrasses d'Eze, Guillaume Keller.

We hope that these agreements of musical notes and taste of internationally renowned performers will contribute to the influence of our two municipalities. These are the words of Stéphane Cherki, mayor of Eze. "This festival between Earth and Sea, co-organized with the city of Eze will include for this first edition prestigious names accustomed to international stages," says the mayor of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Jean-Francois Dieterich.
