Festival del Sole Returns to the Napa Valley
With the success of last year’s Festival del Sole, it is no surprise that event organizers are planning a return trip to California’s wine country. This year’s event will incorporate staged opera along with the usual dose of music and art.
Festival del Sole will bring world class instrumentalists, vocalists and conductors to wine country. The musical and theatrical event will feature the Bay Area’s Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, the University of Texas at Austin Wind Band and the return of the Russian National Orchestra.
Scheduled for July 13 – 22, the 10 day festival will take place at several fitting venues; including Napa Valley Opera House, Lincoln Theater and a new venue, Castello di Amoroso. Festival del Sole will mirror a festival in Cortona, Italy that is held during the summer.
The festival is presented by the Del Sole Foundation for the Arts and Humanities. The daily concerts will be followed by meals prepared by celebrity chefs, paired with the best wines that California has to offer.
