As a nod to LABO 2020, the Abbaye aux Dames will organise a prelude to the fiftieth edition of the Festival de Saintes by broadcasting concerts which were captured behind closed doors in the abbey during the Festival du LABO 2020, in seven remarkable sites around Saintes from June 21st to July 15th.
On the occasion of this exceptional celebration, the Abbaye aux Dames and its partners wish to transmit music throughout the region through an innovative experience of “decentralised” concerts, in the spirit of sharing and conviviality.
