Each summer, the Forest Festival bringing together classical music, nature and heritage, renews the forms of the concert and invites the spectator to live new experiences. Unique in its kind, placed under the sign of discovery and originality, the festival weaves unexpected links between nature and art in the heart of the forest of Compiègne. It is a must in the Hauts-de-France.

For lovers of lyrical art, it is impossible to come to Compiègne without discovering the Imperial Theatre. This architectural jewel, whose construction began in 1867 at the request of Napoleon III in order to entertain the court that accompanied him during his stays in Compiègne, was inaugurated, after a long period of inactivity, in 1991. Exceptional in its volume, the Théâtre Impérial is also exceptional in its acoustic qualities.
