4The 47th edition of the Festival de Saintes was a great success!
"For 9 days with some 30 concerts, the Abbaye aux Dames lived up to its name as the abbey of ladies with an array of female interpreters who dominated this year’s edition of the festival (without forgetting the great number of men also involved). The voice and the piano were in the spotlight, just as young musicians with, for example, the Jeune Orchestre de l’Abbaye. The Carroussel Musical, inaugurated in April, delighted both children and adults, while the offer “My seat at 1€” seduced the young spectators under the age of 18. We invite to join us again next year for the 48th edition, from 12th to 20th July 2019."
