For its 2023 edition, the Saint-Céré festival is back from July 31 to August 12, with a program focusing on discovery and creation.

A “great musical celebration”, “in the heart of summer, under the magic of a starry sky, in an exceptional heritage made up of castles, national monuments, gardens, churches”: such is the promise of the festival of Saint -Céré, of which Linternaute is a partner, which takes place this year from July 31 to August 12, 2023, with a program focusing on discovery and creation. For a fortnight, creations, rediscoveries, original programs will delight young and old.

The story made the headlines in the international press: that of the Rooster Maurice, who despite himself had become a spokesperson for the animal world, a symbol of rural life. The country opera, imagined by Julien Masmondet in the musical direction, retraces the improbable story of the legal adventures of the Rooster Maurice, dragged to justice by neighbors who no longer support his singing. The composer Pascal Zavaro, with the complicity of Mathieu Pattedoie for the libretto, the conductor Julien Masmondet and the director Catherine Dune offer a country opera accessible to all.

Le Coq Maurice – duration 1h10 – at the Théâtre de l’Usine in Saint-Céré, on Wednesday August 2, 2023 and Friday August 4, 2023, at 9 p.m.

The Hermès Quartet, composed of Lou Yung-Hsin Chang on the viola, Omer Bouchez and Elise Liu on the violin and Yan Levionnois on the cello, agrees on the works of Beethoven and Gabriel Fauré, the time of a show of 1h15, presented at the Saint-Céré festival, where they had already delighted the public during the 2022 edition.
