Cultural Actions

Transmit lyrical art to younger generations

One of the missions of Lyrique-en-mer is to transmit lyrical art to younger generations. Each year, new cultural mediation actions are put in place, aiming to connect audiences with lyrical artistic offerings. 

Un ambitieux projet de transmission et d’apprentissage du répertoire bellilois a débuté en novembre à la salle Arletty. Encadrés par leur professeur de musique Solenn Le Berre, les 63 élèves du collège Michel Lotte qui ont choisi l’option chorale  travaillent tous les quinze jours avec des artistes professionnels :  Jazmin Black-Grollemund, (chanteuse lyrique et cheffe de chœur) et Aurélien Daniélo (musicien, chanteur et chef de chœur).

The project consists of giving new youth to Bellilois songs through new harmonizations for mixed choir, written by Aurélien Daniélo.

A first performance will be reserved for school audiences and two free concerts for all audiences will take place on May 31 and June 1 in the Arletty room.

Par le passé, le programme « Tous musiciens d’orchestre » et la promotion du chant choral dans les collèges, a permis un partenariat historique de Lyrique-en-mer avec les children from Belle-Ile schools, recorded in article 4 of the statutes, testifying to the invaluable educational experience that the opportunity to sing on stage in an opera with professionals represents for Bellilois children (for example Tosca in 2018).

Towards the so-called "impeded" public, a social and solidarity involvement is more and more requested from the artists because music helps to live... A partnership is now contractualized between Lyrique-en-mer and the hospital of Belle-Ile and its associated living places.

 La journée « Venez Chanter » sera le quatrième group participation concert de Lyrique-en-mer. Les solistes, les jeunes artistes et 150 choristes chanteront des extraits de Chœurs d’opéra  accompagnés par l’orchestre du festival sous la direction de Philip Walsh. Cette proximité fraternelle et vibrante de partage artistique, humain et spirituel valorise la contribution de chacun à la vie culturelle et constitue une expérience unique en faisant de la musique un patrimoine commun.

Since 2014 preferential ticket rates are available to permanent residents of Belle Isle to enable easy access to the concerts. This measure concerns between 1/5 and 1/4 of the total number of spectators. In 2020, Lyrique-en-Mer initiated the pre-recorded screening of the 2019-2020 Metropolitan Opera season (tickets 12€ and 15€) at the Rex cinema in Le Palais and also screens, free of charge to the public, “Opéra sur Écran(s)” (Opera on Screen(s)) with Puccini’s Madam Butterfly being shown on 16th June live from the Opera House in Rennes.

Lyrique-en-mer's membership of the Federation of Classical Music Festivals of Bretagne reinforces its regional affiliation and the opportunities for collaboration and sharing with other musical events in the area.

The stability of a controlled economic model (one opera and one church music work played each 4 or 5 times a year, plus an academy of 15 Young Artists) allows the development of complementary and qualitative "small forms": "Come and sing", various other concerts, recitals at the EHPAD and the FAM... It is a structuring and significant element with long-lasting public partnerships, and a constant and necessary search to enlarge the circle of individual donors, sponsors and patrons.
