This year, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence is inaugurating its “Midis du Festival” (“Midday at the Festival”) series. These free public events will take place at noon, every day (except Sunday) from July 3 to 20, 2019, at the Hôtel Maynier d’Oppède.
The encounters will last for one hour; they will be organized in the form of master classes, panel discussions and conferences, and will give the general public, artists, professionals and festival-goers the opportunity to take part in a group reflection on the issues and challenges of opera and artistic creation.
