Set among lush, rolling foothills and breathtaking vineyard landscapes, Napa Valley Festival del Sole blends world-class artistry, gourmet cuisine, fine wines and lifestyle programs in a unique celebration of the art of life, all during a ten-day experience the New York Times calls a "feast for the senses."
Among the artists appearing this season are violinist Joshua Bell, mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, sopranos Danielle de Niese and Lisa Delan, baritone Nathan Gunn, cellist Nina Kotova, guitarist Angel Romero, pianist Hélène Grimaud, the Russian National Orchestra, and members of the Bolshoi Ballet.
Other highlights include the Napa premiere of 24 Hour Plays, an exciting feat of extreme theater, which involves writing, rehearsing and performing a series of plays in just 24 hours - in this case 4 plays with musical interludes from Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
Audiences will also enjoy the popular Bouchaine Young Artists Series, the annua lTaste of Napa event featuring fine foods and wines from local purveyors, wellness programs, and an opportunity to experience yoga in the vineyards.
Bringing together the legendary hospitality of over 70 of Napa's finest wineries and estates over the past six seasons, as well as stunning venues including a castle courtyard, a historic theater and concerts under the stars, Festival del Sole is a one-of-a-kind experience.
