From 25 July to 06 August 2019

Theatre, as nature intended it.

The theatre is an awe- inspiring sight to watch time and time again in its high mountain setting. Since 1985, the fabulous Gavarnie Cirque, a Grand Site Occitanie (Major Occitanie site) and a UNESCO World Heritage site, hosts an outdoor theatre every summer.

Face to face with the majestic peaks of this "incredible chaotic Coliseum", as Victor Hugo liked to call it, spectators are spellbound by the acting and the staging, but more often it is the twinkling stars above the Cirque that catch their eye.

The 2019 edition presents the mythical "Don Quixote", every evening from 25 July to 06 August. The Festival is held in the heart of the Gavarnie Cirque, a 30-minute walk from the village centre.

An incomparable and unforgettable experience!
