Why support us?

Appointed European Cultural Ambassador in 2013 and named Best Opera Festival in 2014, the first duty of the Festival d’Aix is to"make opera a living experience, an art that gives meaning to the world". The Festival has therefore committed to an approach that involves a clear focus: we want to think of opera as a living art.
