Festival de Saintes

not awarded

Festival de Saintes is hosted by the Abbaye aux Dames in the musical city of Saintes on the banks of the Charente river. Here, music and history, the festival and the Benedictine abbey are inextricably linked. From this medieval venue, the festival has flourished since its beginnings in 1972, when the programme was based on a repertoire of baroque music. It has since broadened its focus to include Renaissance, contemporary and world music, always maintaining artistic quality and authenticity.
