Belmond Hotel Caruso celebrates love for music with a private exclusive concert to enjoy while the world is still asleep.

“Music is a piece of art that goes in the ears, straight to the heart”.

In keeping with the universal feeling and love for Music, Belmond Hotel Caruso is proud to offer its guests the experience of a private and exclusive concert at dawn to be arranged on the Hotel grounds as a tribute to the famous Ravello Festival masterpiece, held every August in the historic gardens of Villa Rufolo.
Ravello (known as the “Città della Musica”- Town of Music) is home to the internationally-renowned Ravello Festival founded in 1953 in honour of Richard Wagner, the German composer, who during a journey on the Amalfi Coast, fell in love with the town and the Villa Rufolo gardens so much that he used them as inspiration for his Klingsor’s garden in the second act of his masterpiece, Parsifal.

For decades, the Festival as been know as Wagner Festival and music by the composer has been the soundtrack of the show. Nowadays, the Ravello Festival programme has become more diverse and throughout the summer offers different genres of music (classical, jazz, pop) and other artistic events.

The main event of the concert season, the Concert at dawn is with undoubtedly the most eagerly awaited. With only 750 seats at the Belvedere (the outdoor stage suspended between sea and sky), it is always fully booked. This unique experience takes place at 5:00 am every August 11th. No words can describe the emotion attendees feel to see the sun rising accompanied by the orchestra playing.

While the dawn concert in Villa Rufolo takes place once a year, to relive this experience Belmond Hotel Caruso offers its guests the opportunity to wake up to the gentle notes of a mini orchestra playing just for them.
The appointment is at the pool area where, escorted by a private butler, guests are invited to seat comfortably while the performance starts as the sun rises higher and the beauty of the Amalfi Coast is revealed in all its glory: it will feel as though the entire universe is conspiring to give guests a perfect unique experience with the musicians conveying a sense of intimacy, creating a strong emotional effect with an incomparable merging of art and music.
