Festival d'Aix-en-Provence 2018

Aix en Provence - Art lyrique - Opéra - From July 4th to 24th

Ever since 1948, the Aix-en-Provence Festival has endeavored to present a program of great diversity: opera productions, works of youth and famous operas by Mozart, contemporary creations, rediscovery of baroque masterpieces, Operas of chamber, without forgetting exceptional posters of concerts.

By encouraging the emergence of young talent, the International Festival of Lyric Art in Aix-en-Provence has resolutely opened up new horizons in the fields of artistic creation. He intends to make opera live in the contemporary world and train him on the most prestigious national and international stages. Resolutely anchored in Provence since its creation, the Festival deploys its shows in the emblematic places of the region: Théâtre de l'Archevêché, Hôtel Maynier d'Oppède, Jeu de Paume Theater, Campra Auditorium - Darius Milhaud Conservatory and Grand Théâtre de Provence .
