Madrid Festival of Sacred Arts

The Madrid Sacred Art Festival, which has been running for over twenty years brings together sacred music, theatre and dance dating from the 14th century up to the present day. During the festival 34 events will be taking place in 23 venues in the Comunidad de Madrid, ranging from theatres to ancient churches. The festival is an international event, with performers coming to Madrid from eleven countries including the USA, France, Germany, Iran and Cuba. This year's programme will include hommage to the composer Liszt and as well as offerings from Greek, Persian and Mandigan cultures. Also the performance of Mozart's Requiem by the San Jerónimo el Real Choir with the Barbieri Chamber Orchestra is tipped to be a highlight.

The festival period is from 28th February-11th April at various locations across the city and Madrid region. Click here for the programme.
