Committed to making art and culture accessible to the many, and convinced that the future of opera is in the making today, Festival d’Aix set up the Passerelles educational and socio-artistic services in 2007 and 2008. Their actions aim to include a wide variety of audiences in the life of the Festival, and invite them to experience the opera.

2021 Digital resources 

To mitigate the cancellation of traditional training days for its partners, Passerelles has recruited a group of specialists to create a new series of videos, some of which aim to raise awareness of the 2021 Festival d’Aix operas, and the others to portray life in its artistic workshops. These new online resources, produced by the audio-visual department of the Festival d’Aix and reserved for Passerelles partners only, are completely free and available on demand in the Passerelles professional area of the Festival website.

If you wish to become a Passerelles partner and gain access to these resources, please contact the Passerelles management team:
