The Mahon Music Festival takes place during July and August with a number of classical music concerts by internationally renowned musicians. The majority of these are held in Mahon’s Teatro Principal which dates back to 1829 and is the oldest opera house in Spain.
Menorca has strong affinity with opera and Opera Weeks are held in May and December each year. Also in Mahon, organ recitals are held in the Santa Maria church every morning, except Sunday, which houses an outstanding 200 year old organ. The Young Musicians of Ciutadella promotes a Summer Music Festival with a varied programme of classical concerts held in the atmospheric Claustre del Seminari in July and August each year.
