Cyprus in September...

July 2011


Make Cyprus your cultural destination for September 2011 and combine your visit to the Pafos Aphrodite Festival with a visit to our internationally acclaimed Wine Festival in Limassol! What a feast for your senses!!

 

Pafos Aphrodite Festival

Cyprus prides itself in hosting yet another popular opera, Les Contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann) by Jacques Offenbach, which offers its music loving audience an unforgettable experience and satisfies the expectations of the friends of the Festival with an internationally acclaimed performance both artistically and organizationally.

Pafos Aphrodite Festival opens its curtains on 2nd, 3rd and 4th September 2011 at the Medieval Castle in Pafos, hosting on its stage the National Theatre of Prague.

Jacques Offenbach was one of the prominent composers of popular music in 19th century Europe, one of the creators of the operetta genre and one of the pioneers of contemporary music comedy. Les Contes d’Hoffmann premiered in Paris in 1881.

 

Limassol Wine Festival

Cyprus’s wine capital of Lemesos (Limassol) lives up to its reputation as a party town with a wine festival that it hosts every year. Held at the Municipal Gardens just across from the coastal promenade, this year from 8 to 18 September, this event has been a regular fixture since it was first launched in 1961.

The Wine Festival began as a tribute to the island’s long winemaking tradition and has grown in size and variety over the years. Inspired by the ancient festivals dedicated to the God of Wine, Dionysos, and the Goddess of Beauty and Love, Aphrodite, it combines fun and merrymaking with ample wine and food and a variety of performances from local and international artistic groups. Addressed to permanent residents as well as foreign guests, the Wine Festival offers an opportunity to sample different local wines from large and small wineries and traditional Cypriot food.

Another popular crowd-pleaser is the traditional wine press. There is a small entrance fee, but once inside all the wine is free. The Festival’s trademark is the huge “Vraka Man” that towers over the entrance with the welcoming motto “Drink wine to be healthy”.
