Aix en juin, from 9 to 30 June 2018
Prelude to the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Aix en juin is proposing, for its sixth edition, a creative and bountiful programme marked by a triple anniversary: the 70 years of the Festival, the 20 years of its Academie and the 10 years of Passerelles, the educational and socio-artistic services of the Festival. Intended to serve the greatest number of people, the events which form part of Aix en juin are free or inexpensive, accessible with a PASS costing 20€ (free for under 30-year olds) which equally allows the holder in July to attend all the public events of the Académie du Festival d’Aix.
From 9 June to 30 June take a dip into the backstage of the Festival, come and hear its renowned artists and discover the young talent of its Academy, as well as the creations proposed by the partners of Passerelles!
Around thirty events (concerts, recitals, performances, masterclasses, opera rehearsals…) amongst which:
- 12 June, PANORAMA : The launch of Aix en juin, of the seventieth edition of the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence and the twentieth anniversary of its Academy with a musical season’s presentation in which several artists programmed this year will participate.
- 24 June, PARADE[S] : Grand urban procession along the cours Mirabeau, prologue to the opera Orfeo & Majnun which will be presented on 8 July. On the programme: short performances, art workshops, sung fanfares, in the company of partners and artists associated with Passerelles.
