From 1st to 9th September, Montreux and its neighbor towns will meet Russia for the Musical September Festival!
Russian Nights In Switzerland event agency, a partner of Musical September, is pleased to invite you to the Festival OFF – satellite of Musical September!
The center of attention will, of course, remain music, but there is also so much more! The Festival OFF on the Swiss Riviera will also feature classical ballet and national dance; cinema screenings and theatre plays in Russian traditions; talks and guided tours about Russia. You will have the opportunity to discover Russian Orthodox culture with its iconography and chants; to take part in the Russian Ball flashmob and in a ceremonial event celebrating September 1st – which is Knowledge Day in Russia. You will taste Russian food and participate in a craft workshop to make a Matryoshka doll by yourself!
All the events of Festival OFF – except movies projections – will be free!
The Festival OFF team promises to make its best to show the depth and diversity of unique multi-ethnic Russia’s culture!
