Context. It remains difficult to interpret the near-IR emission of young stellar populations. One main reason is our incomplete understanding of the spectra of luminous red stars. Aims. This work provides a grid of theoretical spectra of red giant and supergiant stars, that extends through optical and nearIR wavelengths. For the first time, models are also provided with modified surface abundances of C, N and O, as a step towards accounting for the changes that occur due to convective dredge-up…
