When we think of Mélodie Française, we think of french composers, of course, but also one of the most obvious thoughts would be that the music is in french. Actually the original texts of the pieces presented in this amazingly sensible and elegant program are in 5 different languages! We took care of makup and design of this electronic version of the program not only for the care of cultural diversity and accessibility, but also to facilitate a connection and a full experience for the public.Alexandra Asanache – founder of The Baroque Society
