Aix-en-Provence Festival

Aix-en-Provence - Art lyrique - From 01/07 to 31/07/2022, daily. Dates to be confirmed.

Dedicated to the creation of new opera productions and the organization of high-quality concerts, the Festival enjoys great renown, permitting it to join forces with stage directors at the height of their art, visionary orchestras and conductors, first-class casts, and the greatest contemporary composers around. Thanks to its reputation, it engages in coproductions with the finest opera houses in the world, which continue to welcome the Festival’s productions throughout the seasons.

The international Festival in July is preceded by Aix en Juin, a prelude that caters to local audiences and is entirely free, thereby reinforcing bonds in the region, another of the Festival d’Aix’s important roles.

In addition, the Festival is also known for its dynamic Académie, renowned the world over; its vibrant Mediterranean projects, which it supports through the Medinea network and the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra; and the powerful awareness-raising initiatives and creative projects of Passerelles, an educational and socio-artistic programme that welcomes over 500 participants every year.
