The quality of the artistic collaborations, the variety of the projects and high artistic standards have been the keys to the success of Les Talens Lyriques since the time of its founding. In 2015-16, the Ensemble harnesses these strengths to serve new artistic and human challenges operas, vocal and instrumental music, six upcoming CD and DVD releases and an ambitious educational programme based on numeric tools entitled t@lenschool).


Les Talens Lyriques, acknowledged for its capacity to do justice to forgotten masterpieces, also performs the classics of the Baroque repertoire with the same brio, and sometimes new, later repertoires. This positioning develops the Ensemble’s musical expertise, nourishing it with various worlds of sound and orchestral textures.


It is a fundamental value for director Christophe Rousset, and Les Talens Lyriques are more active than ever in making their art accessible to as many people as possible. Les Talens Lyriques residencies in secondary schools are part of an overarching, multidisciplinary and long-term project. The Ensemble creates, rehearses and performs some of the season projects during participatory  and pratical artistic workshops.
