This 2023 edition, placed under the double sign of homage and hope, is dedicated to the co-founder of the Festival, Kader Hassissi, who died last year.
It opens on 7 July with Purcell's Odes, including the famous Hail, Bright Cecilia! celebrating the patron saint of musicians, by Paul Mc Creesh and his Gabrieli Consort and Players. Among the great international names of the Baroque who are regulars in Beaune, Leonardo Garcia Alarcon, conducts Theodora on 8 July, one of the most powerful of Handel's oratorios, with the forces of the Namur Chamber Choir and the Millenium Orchestra. On 15 July Jérémie Rhorer and his Cercle de l'Harmonie will take us on a journey through the fantasy of Felix Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
On 22 July, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and the Ensemble Mattheus get a head start on next year's Olympics by celebrating those devised by Vivaldi. On 23 July William Christie leads a troupe of young singers in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. And Marc Minkowski and the Musiciens du Louvre are back on 30 July with a Nouvelle Symphonie, based on Rameau's most beautiful pages. For the closing evening, on 31 July, Andreas Scholl has chosen the intimacy of the melodies of Dowland and Handel.
But Beaune is also about discovering new talent. With Stéphane Fuget and the Epopées, we are continuing a residency based on the operas of Monteverdi. The Coronation of Poppea will be performed on 14 July with a dazzling cast, including two of the protagonists of the recitals, Paul-Antoine Bénos-Dijan (16 July) and Eva Zaïcik (21 July). Valentin Tournet and his Chapelle Harmonique are back on 28 July for a dazzling Te Deum by Charpentier. And we are particularly pleased to be collaborating this summer with one of the most brilliant and inventive conductors of the young generation, Camille Delaforge, for a Vivaldi recital on 9 July with Anthéa Pichanick.
