Opéra de-ci de-là Residency

8 - 10 March 2019

The Académie du Festival d'Aix proposes a new training programme Opéra de-ci de-là, participative project questioning the strengths and the potential of change in the opera industry. This program aims at training young artists, creators and interpreters, in the stakes and in the creation of participative operas in a frame convenient to the intercultural dialogue and the interdisciplinary exchange. By the exploration of innovative creative processes, this programme offers the opportunity to young artists to experiment the development of small forms.

Anthony Heidweiller, singer and art director of the Opera Forward Festival of Amsterdam, willbe in charge of leading this programme. He has already led workshops on the theme of the participative opera in the framework of the enoa network.


Opera Creation Workshop

26 June - 6 July 2019

The Opera Creation Workshop is open each year to young creators from all disciplines and is a place for reflection and discussion on artistic opera-related issues. This workshop seeks to define current values of opera and the tasks it will assume in the future.

A process of reflection will take place, focusing equally on opera performance today and on the multidisciplinary aspects that it encompasses. Opera – as a genre, as a cultural offering and as a cultural practice – is the main subject of these discussions.

The French composer Pascal DusapinMedeamaterial created in 1991 at La Monnaie in Bruxelles and Perelà, Uomo di fumo created in 2003 in Opéra Bastille, will be in charge of leading this workshop.

This workshop is part of the Young Opera Makers programme of enoa (European Network of Operas Academies) and benefit of the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.


Opera & Cultural journalism

1st - 6 July 2019

The Académie du Festival d’Aix, with the support of the enoa network, is organising a unique workshop on cultural journalism, and more specifically on critical reviews of opera, under the supervision of South African journalist Shirley Apthorp (Financial Times, Opera Magazine, etc.) and Dutch playwright Willem Bruls (Opernwelt, The Wall Street Journal Europe, etc.). 

In a context of profound change in the media sector, the Opera & Journalism Workshop aims to introduce participants to the principles of critical reviews and cultural journalism in opera.

This workshop is part of the Young Opera Makers programme of enoa (European Network of Operas Academies) and benefit of the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.


Composers Residency

8 - 13 July 2019

The Académie du Festival d’Aix is commissioning 4 young composers to create one instrumental piece each, of a length of 10 to 15 minutes.

These new works will be performed as a world first by the Ensemble Modern musicians at a concert given as part of the contemporary music showcase for the Festival d’Aix 2019.

The residency offers the composers a unique opportunity to be involved in the process of performance of their work, while benefiting from the experience and expertise of the Ensemble Modern musicians. In Aix-en-Provence, the 4 selected composers thus benefit from a rare work environment and a high degree of visibility among the Festival audience and professionals.


Opera & New technologies

13 - 18 July 2019

Under the supervision of the composer Michel van der Aa, for the occasion of the new version of his show, Blank Out, at Festival d’Aix 2019, the Opera & New technologies workshop takes the format of reflection and discussion on the use of new technologies in the creation of opera.

This workshop proposes to define the potential of new technologies in the field of musical and theatrical creation: from the tool used to roll out an idea, to the essential and constitutive element of the narrative. The workshop will be broken up with meetings, visits and shows.

This workshop is part of the Young Opera Makers programme of enoa (European Network of Operas Academies) and benefit of the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
