The Peralada festival, supported by the Puig foundation, holds its second Easter edition, cementing its position as a landmark date in the Mediterranean region.

The festival narrative fosters dialogue between music and spirituality at Easter time

Following its première in 2023, the Peralada festival remains committed to its Easter edition, which is held at Easter time and is a special event at which to connect with music and spirituality in a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

The Easter edition is held in the church of El Carme, a 14th-century sanctuary that offers a small venue – it seats some 240 people – within Peralada castle.

The Puig foundation celebrates the success of this special edition of the festival, which highlights its commitment to art and society in close association.

Easter 2024 went very well, with two concerts at its core: the modern Spanish première of Stradella’s oratorio San Giovanni Battista, and the world première of the responsory to follow the lessons of Tenebrae (Feria sexta in Parasceve), by the composer from Reus Joan Magrané. Both of these are special productions for the festival, cementing its position as a driver for creativity and as a recoverer and rediscoverer of our musical heritage.

This second edition of the Peralada Easter Festival was 87% sold out. It was 100% sold out, but the cancellation of the performance by Korean pianist Yanchun Lim reduced this due to some cancellations by audiences coming from abroad.
