Dance, theatre, music, ballet, opera and recitals in their most traditional, but also their most avant-garde and innovative versions, make up the programme. 30 days in which churches, gardens, palaces and even caves are the stages for some of the most significant artists from different spheres of the performing arts from around the world.
