Come celebrate Christmas with William Christie and Les Arts Florissants! At the head of his ensemble, the conductor invites you to discover a Christmas mass as it might have been heard in the time of Marc-Antoine Charpentier...


This concert is part of the Arts Florissants Christmas program at Fontevraud Abbey:

For the festive season, Les Arts Florissants and Fontevraud are joining forces for an exceptional event: an original musical Christmas in the Abbey!

The two Centres Culturels de Rencontre of the Pays de la Loire region are collaborating once again, to the delight of music lovers and heritage enthusiasts. Spread over the entire nativity season, from Advent to Epiphany, four concerts invite you to plunge into the musical atmosphere of 17th century French Christmas. This is an opportunity to hear some of the most beautiful scores by Marc-Antoine Charpentier and his contemporaries, performed by the greatest specialists in this repertoire under the expert baton of William Christie and Paul Agnew.

Concert co-produced by the Centre Culturel de l’Ouest and Les Arts Florissants
With the generous support of Aline Foriel-Destezet
