Vivaldi trio of bass guitar, accordion and violin - a unique interpretation of the Four Seasons. A balmy evening, wine bar before, at interval and afterwards. Not a bad seat in the amphitheatre. Beautiful night out.

Sterling EQ gave a sterling performance that took away the drought blues for a few hours. What a wonderful setting for a concert - well organized and the Pongracz was excellent as well

We were fascinated by the Riel dances on the open air stage at Libertas. A wonderfull informal evening with a glass of good wine and a stage with good local talent. We will visit Libertas again!
