Les Arts Florissants
Every afternoon during the Festival Dans les Jardins de William Christie, the artists of Les Arts Florissants invite you to enjoy a unique experience combining the beauty of nature and the pleasures of music in the idyllic setting of William Christie's Gardens and the Quartier des Artistes!
Guided tours of William Christie's Gardens
Each afternoon – 3pm
Specialists and lovers of William Christie's gardens invite you to discover this "remarkable garden" listed as a historical monument, during guided tours specially designed for the Festival. A way to grasp the spirit of this fascinating and eclectic place, imagined from scratch by the conductor... and which promises new surprises every year.
Each afternoon – 3pm
Every afternoon, the artists of Les Arts Florissants offer discovery sessions of baroque music and dance, adapted to all ages. This year, dancer Pierre-François Dollé will invite the public to a tour of the village, full of surprises, on the theme of "the enchanted island"... while in the gardens, singer and director Sophie Daneman will lead a participatory singing workshop devoted to Molière, whose 400th anniversary is being celebrated this year. Fun and friendly experiences for the whole family!
Participatory Garden Workshop
Each afternoon – 3pm-7pm
Set up in the Pépinière café-boutique, this workshop invites children to experiment with different gardening activities, on the theme of Molière and the 17th century. They will be introduced to the cutting and sowing of plants found in William Christie's gardens... or in Molière's time!
Facilitators: Muriel de Curzon, Jean-Yves de Curzon, Nathalie Joguet-Rocheteau
