L’amour de loin, the first digital festival of the Forces Musicales!

From December 4 to 16 inclusive, the 46 member orchestras and operas of the Forces Musicales will participate in this grand premiere, a free event accessible to all.

For the past eight months, operas, orchestras and festivals have been striving to nurture the precious bond that unites them with the public, and have decided to join forces and showcase France’s music in all its richness. Operas, ballets, concerts, workshops, debates: more than 35 live or freshly recorded events will allow everyone to rediscover a taste for the emotions that music can bring us.

“In only 4 weeks, the strength of the collective has carried us to compose this sum of local initiatives and make it a national event that surpasses us,” enthuses Loïc Lachenal, President of the Musical Forces and General Director of the Rouen-Normandy Opera.

Love from afar, but all together. The concept of this festival is above all to highlight the many artistic activities proposed by all, but also and above all, to make them live together. Practically, each structure will broadcast its event from its Facebook page and the whole network will cross-post (share the broadcast stream), in order to share it with the greatest number and thus make the public travel throughout France.
To ensure maximum accessibility, prime time shows will also be broadcast online on the Forces Musicales website (

The festival will come to an end at a time when a progressive resumption of the reception of the public in the flesh will once again be possible in homes. As they have demonstrated since the beginning of the crisis, Les Forces Musicales is based on values of solidarity and sharing, always with the aim of demanding and high quality artistic content.

“Faced with the difficulties encountered, it is from the collective that we draw enthusiasm, energy and inventiveness. Each structure here brings a precious stone to the common edifice, a logic of mutual aid born in the crisis and that we will maintain in the months and years to come,” concludes Aline Sam-Giao, General Manager of the Lyon National Orchestra Auditorium and Vice-President of the union.
