The Chœur et Orchestre Philharmonique International under the musical direction of Amine Kouider stages the comic opera "La Belle Hélène" by Offenbach in a concert version for soloists, chorus and orchestra.
In view of the COP21, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO wishes to give the World Oceans Day on 8 June 2015 a unique format. It aims to raise awareness and mobilize the civil society, scientists, policy makers and the youth, so that the ocean is better taken into account in climate change initiatives and to encourage intensified research for sustainable mitigation strategies sensitive about the ocean and the coasts.

Promoting these strong initiatives through music is a role that the Chœur Philharmonique International, as "UNESCO Artist for Peace," will play with enthusiasm. The poetic and musical show " Enchantons l’Océan," hence opens a preparatory week for this international mobilization day.

The price per person is 34€. Reservation via the home page.
