Summer in Seville – Pick of the Palaces

July 25, 2017 – 12:32 am

Outdoor events rule the scene in summertime Seville, as temperatures climb to the 40s on a regular basis (105F). Here are some of the cultural events on during July and August, from music, theatre and dance to outdoor cinema.

One of the most long-standing events is the Noches en Los Jardines del Real Alcazar, now in its 18th season.  These concerts in the gardens of the royal palace, next to the Charles III Pavilion, take place from Monday to Saturday until 9 September, and include flamenco, classical and world music.

Especially recommended are dates featuring superb Seville Royal Symphony Orchestra oboeist, Brit Sarah Roper, who plays on 3 August in a duo with guitarist Maria Esther Guzman, and on 5 September in the MeSaMoR Trio, featuring Maria and flautist Vicent Morello. For the full programme, and to book tickets (avoid the online booking fee by collecting tickets in person, see alcazarsevilla.org Concerts take place at 10.30pm, with the gardens open an hour earlier.

 

 

This season of concerts and plays continues until the end of August.
