Since 2002, BarokOpera Amsterdam proposes an ambitious and gratifying reinterpretation of the works of Henry Purcell. Fairy Queen, A Tempest, King Arthur and Funeral music for Queen Mary will be one to introduce you to Queen Mary. Between war, love and loyalty, this concert will retrace the life of the queen Mary Stuart II and her husband Guillaume III of Orange as the compositor lived it. 
This concert pays tribute to Henry Purcell, the appointed composer of the Court of England at the end of the 17th century.

Basilica Notre-Dame of Alençon...

Located in the heart of the city of Alençon, this basilica astonished by the richness of the message of its windows, by the harmony of its gothic nave of the 15th century and by the delicate flamboyant decoration of its early 16th century porch. Very beautiful stained-glass windows.
Chapel where Sainte-Thérèse-de-l'Enfant-Jésus was baptized on January 4, 1873. It was the ties between Saint Térèse and Notre-Dame Church which led in August 2009 to its elevation to the rank of Basilica by Pope Benedict XVI.
