COSTA RICA - July 25 to August, 17, 1997

Rain Forest in the morning, a luxurious concert by night

Costa Rica is a small lush country with an incredible natural richness, different landscapes and a wide variety of climates. Here you can visit a rain forest in the morning and come back to listen to a string quartet in the evening, or lay on a white sand tropical beach all day long and be on time for a piano recital at 8:00 p.m.

The Costa Rica International Music Festival is held every summer at the Opera of San Josť (Teatro Nacional) a splendid architectural masterpiece from the Nineteenth Century, where one can listen to great interpreters playing on a Steinway grand or a dainty harpsichord, all with incomparable acoustics.

Program Teatro Nacional

Several concerts will be repeated in some of the most beautiful sites in the country: an amphitheater hanging from a cliff with a breathtaking view of the ocean; a small theater in the mountains, a hall beside the world-famous Cloud Forest of Monteverde.
