The tenth edition of “Musiques en Fête,” broadcast from the ancient theater of Orange at the opening of the 2021 edition of the Chorégies was festive. This edition was an opportunity to showcase the quality and artistic richness of this legendary festival, the oldest in France. 25 soloists, 200 orchestral musicians and choristers offered an exceptional show programmed and conceived by Alain Duault.
For the occasion, three lyric singers called on Julien Fournié for their exceptional outfits on this legendary stage, beating all audience records for a program devoted to opera and broadcast simultaneously on France 3 and France Musique on Friday. June 18, 2021, at 9:05 p.m. It will also be scheduled on June 25 at 9:00 p.m. on TV5 Monde.
Mezzo-soprano Marina Viotti, who has already asked Julien Fournié to imagine his wardrobe for recitals, has, of course, worn new outfits by her favorite French couturier for his three appearances.
Soprano Jeanne Gérard, named one of the revelations of the Victoires de la Musique Classique this year, sang two great arias, one of which was taken from a legendary musical. Julien Fournié imagined outfits for her that particularly highlight her complexion and her sensuality.
Soprano Erminie Blondel performed two arias by Verdi, notably in an embroidered dress and ensemble for the evening.
Julien Fournié is delighted to participate more and more actively in this annual celebration of recognized talents in the lyric art.
