Opera in the open air, Les Noces de Figaro: soon!


For its 17th edition, the Open Air Opera has chosen Les Noces de Figaro. The tour begins in Domaine Départemental de Sceaux (Parc de Sceaux) on 16 and 17 June. Hotel Le Petit Chomel is near the Parc de Sceaux by metro.

You can also take advantage of it to visit the park one of the jewels of the historical heritage of the Ile-de-France region. Colbert, the minister of Louis XIV, acquired it in 1670 and appealed to the most talented artists of his time, such as André Le Nôtre, Charles Perrault and Charles Le Brun. The Duke and Duchess of Maine animated him during the first half of the eighteenth century. The park designed by Le Nôtre retains the beauty of a French garden. Waterfalls, water games and flowered flowerbeds serve as a showcase for classical buildings..
