In 2021, the Festival d'Aix is launching the first edition of an annual professional day dedicated to the promotion of the creators of the Académie, whose objectives is to consolidate an artistic advisory role as well as to generate real career opportunities.

In association with Accord Majeur, this day allows opera professionals and new generations of artists to meet, exchange around artistic projects, and discuss the challenges of programming and creation today.

Since 2016, the stage director Katie Mitchell and the Académie du Festival d'Aix have been perfecting an innovative programme working towards greater equality between men and women in opera. Thanks to the support of the Music Moves Europe programme, this residency have been given a new dimension. Spread over fifteen months, it enables twelve young professionals (composers, authors, conductors and stage directors) to strengthen their career development strategy.

This first edition of Génération Opéra is part of the programme Young Women Opera Makers.
