Baroque Académie

To reveal the talent of unknown young singers by sending them on a tour of the world’s leading venues: this is the aim of “Le Jardin des Voix”, the academy founded by William Christie. We share moments of grace, uncertainty and disappointment as the film follows the jury through the auditioning process. Then, a year later, we find the ten winners at the Théâtre de Caen for three weeks of intensive rehearsal with some of the leading figures from today’s Baroque music scene as Paul Agnew.

Le Jardin des Voix is coproduced by les Arts Florissants and the Théâtre de Caen.
