Milan, the capital of fashion and art, always offers something fascinating and unique to discover. Among the most evocative experiences that the city offers, the Candlelight Concerts are a true gem for music lovers and those who appreciate magical atmospheres.

What is Candlelight

The Candlelight Concerts are a global initiative that brings classical and contemporary music to extraordinary settings, illuminated only by the warm and soft light of candles. This format aims to make great music accessible to everyone, in an intimate and welcoming atmosphere.

Musical Variety and Dream Locations

In Milan, the Candlelight program stands out for its diversity. Events range from tributes to great classical composers like Vivaldi and Chopin to evenings dedicated to modern music icons like Queen, Coldplay, and Ed Sheeran. Tributes to more specific genres like K-Pop or the soundtracks of famous films are also included.
The chosen locations are equally impressive and varied, featuring historic places such as Auditorium San Fedele, Teatro Lirico Giorgio Gaber, and the evocative Casa Cardinale Ildefonso Schuster. Each space is transformed for the occasion into a unique stage, where architecture merges with music to create an immersive experience.

Event Details

The concerts generally take place in two sessions on the same evening, each lasting about 65 minutes. It is important to note that access to events is regulated, and tickets cannot be purchased on-site but only through online reservation. The tranquility of the event is ensured by electric candles, which provide the necessary safety without sacrificing the intimate ambiance of real flames.
