Concert lecture


Concert lectures are developed in relation to one of the programmes presented by Les Arts Florissants, and allow spectators to deepen their listening experience with explanations given by the conductor (on the work, the libretto, compositional techniques etc.) and illustrated live with musical excerpts performed by musicians on stage. These concerts are also a chance to meet the artists.
