The famous English singer, Felicity Lott, is taking up her autumn quarters at the Musée d'Orsay, which she has always held in deep affection. A musical residency marked by joyfulness, sharing and broadcasting.
A soprano with irresistible charm, recognised for her typically British generosity and humour, Dame Felicity Lott, honoured by the Queen of England in 1996, is also a great ambassador for French melody and song. She takes up an artistic residence this autumn at the Musée d'Orsay, whose collections are, for her, a constantly renewed source of inspiration. Three highlights will mark this residency: an evening recital, a directed masterclass for young, prizewinning singers from the Royaumont foundation, and lastly an evening when the public can discover the many sides of one of the most engaging personalities of the operatic world.

Interview

Dame Felicity Lott lends herself to the game of conversation with Olivier Bellamy, journalist and author of a book of interviews with the English singer. She comes back for us on her career, her artistic choices and the figures that accompanied her. She will also evoke her passion for the arts and her attachment to the Musée d'Orsay's collection.
