Competition for Baroque concert in Nice

To celebrate the launch of our brand new website, Riviera Insider is giving away tickets for the ‘Leçons de Ténèbres concert on Friday 18th March and Sunday 20th March in Nice. We have five pairs of tickets for giveaway. 

This weekend the Baroque Ensemble of Nice will perform ‘Leçons des Ténèbres’, a genre of music from the 17th century. It was composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier and François Couperin in 1634 and created to celebrate the Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday. This music is deep, solemn and incredibly dramatic. Both performances take place at the Église Saint-Martin-Saint-Augustin. Friday’s performance begins at 8.30pm and Sunday’s performance begins at 4.30pm.
