Young audiences

The Festival de Saintes unfolds at the heart of the abbey. It also occupies the paths that criss-cross its grounds, offering original musical discoveries to new audiences and initiates (conferences, discovery tasting, public rehearsals, singing classes, choir…). It is another way to approach musicians and/or make music.
Singing classes, workshops, and the experience of their very first concert are just some of the different, customised ways that children can discover music during the festival.



Compagnie Charabia

Dans un espace intime et immersif, doux et sobre à la fois, un univers de perceptions et d’images se construit petit à petit pour inviter les spectateurs à écouter, imaginer, rire, deviner, rêver, rencontrer l’autre, librement.
