The festival will be held between July 5 and 28 and will pay tribute to the soprano on July 21 with a special evening led by the Festival team, Stéphane Fuget, and the musicians of Les Epopées.

Devos was due to perform Beaune this year with Stéphane Fuget and Les Epopées in a production of “Alcina” on July 19 and was set to perform a recital of music by Händel on July 21.
