An annual festival held both in Spoleto, Italy and Charleston, SC. The one in Charleston occurs in early summer and provides all-day opera, theater, jazz, orchestra, monologue, and a host of other types of arts. The festival is well worth a trip to Charleston, but be sure to get your hotel reservations early!

For those with a more limited budget, there is also Piccolo Spoleto – a series of less expensive performances that occurs at the same time as Spoleto.

The only problem is that there are so many performances going on that it’s hard to catch them all, or even decide which one to go to!
