shows during 31 years

The Nuits Lyriques de Marmande are supported by the City of Marmande, the Departmental Council of Lot-et-Garonne, the New-Aquitaine Region, Val-de-Garonne Agglomeration, the DRAC, as well as private organisations…
The Association des Nuits Lyriques de Marmande is managed by a team of volunteers who succeed in mobilising local musical forces, the population, local authorities and private partners in order to promote Lyric Art, from Marmande, by promoting young lyric artists. Manuel Sebastian, General Delegate, administers and coordinates this operation and the projects.

May 2021

Nuits Lyriques Summer Festival and International Singing Competition
21 - 28 august 2021

A unique Cultural Project for the professional integration of young singers, which combines a Competition and a Festival allowing to:

DISCOVER and PROVIDE new talents,
INSERT them into the operatic career,
WELCOME new audiences with its mediation activities.

Our action brings together the population but also local artistic structures, companies and suppliers from the region, private partners and local authorities. All are participating in making this event an essential part of the intangible heritage of Lot-et-Garonne and the Art de Vivre Ensemble du Sud-Ouest.

Solidly rooted in their territory, the Nuits Lyriques de Marmande are, like Music, widely open to the world.

In all its activities, our association has adopted an eco-responsible approach in order to participate in the protection of the environment and to have an attitude in line with the social responsibility of associations.

Through their roots and wings, our Festival and Competition contribute to the dynamism, wealth creation, attractiveness, identity and international influence of our Urban Area, our Department and our Region.
