Launched in 2002, the Arts Florissants' "Le Jardin des Voix" academy for young singers is recognized as an exceptional breeding ground of talent and it has quickly taken on an international dimension. The academy takes place over two weeks and then goes on tour performing a dozen or so concerts in renowned concert halls and opera houses in France, Europe and the United States. For its eighth edition, Le Jardin des Voix will reveal to the public six young singers from amongst the most talented of their generation. Chosen from all over the world, these future stars of the opera stage will sing an anthology of English airs on an international tour, conducted in turns by William Christie and Paul Agnew.
