The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.

GensThe French soprano Véronique Gens will be guest in the final concert of the first season of Baroque Opera Starts.

In the year 2002 the soprano was nominated for a Victoire de la Musique as best singer of the year.
