A Magical Night of Breton Music and Dance in Paris

A Magical Night of Breton Music and Dance in Paris

The region of Brittany has a very strong culture that those visiting Paris may not necessarily get to experience. That is why the musical spectacular ‘Breizh Night’ is a must for all those who are interested in different types of French culture. Guests staying at the Hôtel de la Tour Maubourg can take the metro to the station Bercy in order to catch all of the action.

Breton is the regional language specific to Brittany, and ‘Breizh’ is the Breton name for Brittany. Breizh Night therefore has the objective of showcasing the best and most entertaining aspects of Breton music and dance, revealing the creativity of Breizh natives and their history. The musical performance is touring all around France and comes to Paris on January 18, 2014, after having already been put on in Nantes, Lille and Caen in 2013.

The concert takes place at the beautifully immense Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, with a seating capacity of 17,000.  Onstage, 150 performers will dazzle the audience. From young talents to popular groups to traditional Breton performers, a variety of music and dance styles from Brittany will be shown off. In the space of more than two hours, the public will be entertained and amused by the magic of Brittany.

Examples of acts on the agenda are bagpipes played by Ronan Le Bars, the circle dance performance troupe Beuzec Cap Sizun, and music group Jeu å la Nantaise — which specializes in both traditional Breton music and contemporary music. These acts and many more will come to Paris following a small ‘test’ tour that took place in 2013.

Tickets for Breizh Night are on sale now and can be purchased online. Tickets range from €34 to €65, depending on the seat location
