Mahdia´s Festivals

Int. Fest. of symphonic music of El Jem

Who would have thought that the roaring of wild animals and the Cries of gladiators would give place to the softness and beauty of the symphonic music? Each year, the prestigious Roman amphitheater Thysdrus comes alive again through the sounds of the enchanting melodies and the clapping of its 30,000 spectators. The festival program includes the greatest world orchestras such as the famous Opera Ball of Vienna, the Sinfonica di Roma or the 100 violins Gypsies: A magical moment to meet history that you should not miss under any circumstances.
