Opera Play, the new free application of the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, is all about learning whilst having fun. It is available for downloading now from stores (Google Play and App Store) ! Designed and produced by Sonic Solveig, in partnership with DRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, it offers an array of original and interactive musical games to discover singing and lyric voices and is targeted at everyone, from the novice to the knowledgeable music lover!
With Opera Play, the opera opens its doors to you! As you browse, listen to the story and the characteristics of each tessitura and its legendary interpreters; feel the power of extracts from grand arias – selected from recordings of performances at Festival d‘Aix in the past ten years; test your knowledge and take part in games to recognise tones from recordings of Mozart arias by the artists of the Académie du Festival d’Aix 2017, produced specifically for these games; and thanks to a karaoke, get on stage and have fun performing two famous arias from Carmen!
This range of interactive games makes this application and ideal learning tool, for children and adults alike. Partners of the educational and socio-artistic services of Festival d’Aix tested the application prior to its release: discover their feedback now, which is sure to convince you! All you have to do now is download it and tell others about it!
