Le Jardin des Voix is the bi-annual academy for promising young singers, founded by William Christie in 2002. We share moments of grace, uncertainty and disappointment as the film follows the jury through the auditioning process, with Paul Agnew (coach and singing teacher). Then, a year later, we find the ten winners at the Théâtre de Caen, where Les Arts Flo are resident, for three weeks of intensive rehearsal prior to an international tour that will take them to London, Brussels, Lisbon, Paris , New York... Includes footage from London s Barbican Centre. Young singers participating in 'Le Jardin' 2011, the tenth anniversary, will be on stage in the eagerly -awaited revival of Atys at the Opéra Comique, which premiered on May 12th.
