The Festival de Saintes returns between 13th and 21st July 2018!
More than 45 years ago, Saintes lived a double renaissance: one of the Abbaye aux Dames and the other of early music with the creation of the music festival.
Nowadays, the artistic direction, entrusted to Stephan Maciejewski, opens up to more contemporary music styles, but Bach and, more broadly, early music, still keep their special place in the programme. Far from fashions and dogmas, the festival invites new interpretations of masterpieces to renew the creative approach.
Programme presentation: Sunday 18th March / 11AM / Auditorium (Free admission)
Box office opening: Friday 23rd March / 10AM (on-site) and Monday 26th March (online: www.boutique.abbayeauxdames.org)
