First established in 2003, the event is a summer country house opera held in the private gardens of Les Capucins in Anjou, France. Located near the Loire town of Baugé, the festival is modelled on England’s Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Performances feature 90-minute intervals, allowing members of the audience to picnic in the park of Les Capucins. The opera is noted for its authentic performances, with a full orchestra and chorus in support of fully staged productions.
