We at Opéra de Baugé wish all of our supporters bonnes fêtes and a happy and healthy 2022.
After two blank years, we are determined to put on our opera festival in 2022. Obviously this depends on health regulations but we believe that the pandemic is receding and that we will be able to operate in a more or less normal way.
Nevertheless we have to proceed cautiously. We have decided to plan the festival in such a way as not to be financially vulnerable if our public does not return in the numbers to which we were accustomed up to 2019.
We have accordingly agreed with the town of Baugé en Anjou that our performances will take place this year in the Centre Culturel René d’Anjou. This spares us the considerable cost of renting a theatre with stage and seating, as well as lighting and other equipment.
We know that some people have a strong preference for performances at Les Capucins as opposed to the CCRA. We ask for your indulgence this year, as we are in a situation where the survival of the festival is uppermost in our minds, and we are counting on your support and patience.
We also know that many people appreciate picnicking or dining at Les Capucins and we intend to provide transport between the CCRA and Les Capucins to enable people to move quickly to Les Capucins for the interval. We will provide further information on this on due course.
The timetable for 2022 is already published on our website – see the link at the top of the page. We will open bookings soon.
