20 I 21 Season

Dear audiences,

Following our 2019-20 season which, of course, was a little difficult due to the circumstances, we are very happy and proud to announce our new comprehensive and ambitious programme for 2020-21. Throughout the season we will be presenting some familiar names like Bach, Mozart, Ellington and Prévert, alongside a selection of less well-known work, ranging from French song to contemporary Italian music. And in all of our programming, the key is: diversity combined with quality. We hope that you will enjoy discovering – or rediscovering – classics, witness new works being created, and appreciate performances that mix music with theatre or poetry…

Once again, this season sees the commitment grow ever stronger between the Conservatoire and its partners, who will be hosting almost one quarter of our productions. Indeed the number of partnerships will be further increased in 2020-21.

This season also features some anniversaries: performances of Beethoven in honour of what would be his 250th birthday, with a variety of concerts and study days, as well as the fifteenth edition of our Courants d’airs festival, by now a firm fixture in our schedule.

Naturally this season would mean nothing without you, our generous public who support and enjoy our work in your thousands every year. We hope that as many of you will continue to accept our invitation to enjoy our work and continue supporting our young artists. At the Conservatoire, 650 students from all over the world work with great passion, preparing to share with you the end result of their dedication, their craft and the best of their art. They hope very much that you, our public, will support them in developing their artistry and realizing their future ambitions and projects.
In these troubled times more than ever, the culture sector needs your support and enthusiasm.

We hope you enjoy the – live – show, together with us.

Frédéric de Roos, Director
