The French president was in Strasbourg on Monday on government business.

What to do in the evening? He drops in unannounced to the Opéra National du Rhin to see a performance of Carmen involving young people of diverse backgrounds from the region.


Report here.

    No, he dropped in to see a education dept. working session (répétition participatif)

    • AMetFan says:

      Either way, Macron is way ahead our American president. Sadly, it wouldn’t even hit the radar of that blank screen, Betsy de Vos.

    Oh, I would never have guessed it was Macron except for that entourage accompanying him!!:-)
