The music program, conceived by Mathieu Romano and carried out by Xavier Veilhan, took the audience on a voyage of discovery of either intriguing, mysterious, moving or amusing universes. The participation of the Opéra Comique’s Maîtrise Populaire was conceived has the red thread linking the intense parts of the program performed by Ensemble Aedes et Les métaboles.

The Fondation Bettencourt Schueller is one of the main sponsors of the Maîtrise Populaire. It devotes its time and energy to the selection, support and promotion of people who are already envisioning the world of tomorrow in three key areas that are significantly fostering    social good: life sciences, arts and solidarity.

As a loyal sponsor of the Maîtrise Populaire, the fondation commits to promoting choral singing, which fosters values such as personal development, the sharing of experiences and the beauty of a repertoire that is more often than   not overlooked.
