Why support us?

THE FESTIVAL D’AIX OWES ITS VERY CREATION TO ITS INDIVIDUAL DONORS AND CORPORATE SPONSORS. THIS PHILANTHROPIC SPIRIT IS STILL PRESENT TODAY, AND CONTINUES TO HELP US TO ACHIEVE OUR AMBITIONS.
READ OUR SPOTLIGHT ON FOUR MAJOR PROJECTS THAT WERE DEVELOPED THANKS TO THE COMMITMENT OF OUR DONORS!

A NEW AMBASSADOR FOR THE CLUB DES JEUNES MÉCÈNES

Pene Pati follows in the footsteps of Jakub Józef Orliński and will be working with the young sponsors at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in their efforts to favour the opera of tomorrow. The young tenor from Samoa is an Adler Fellow at the San Francisco Opera and will debut at the Festival d’Aix this summer. His career reflects a new generation of opera singers who strive for more diversity in the world of opera. Pene Pati and the young sponsors continue their philanthropic commitment to fostering emerging new talents.

PÉBÉO: A CREATIVE BUSINESS COMMITTED TO THE REGION

Pébéo provides equipment for creative activities used by the artistic initiatives of the Passerelles programme, developed by the Festival d’Aix.
For over 10 years, the Festival d’Aix has reached out to a very young public and to groups that have limited access to culture, via numerous visual and graphic arts workshops focused on music and opera. Through this new partnership, Pébéo, a century-old business located in Gémenos, France, affirms its commitment to artistic education by making artistic activities accessible to as many people as possible and by promoting personal development and creativity for all.

THE CERCLE INCISES: COMMITTED TO CREATING OPERA

The Cercle Incises unites over a dozen major individual donors or foundations who are passionate about contemporary creation. This year, three productions will be supported by the Cercle Incises, including Pascal Dusapin’s Il Viaggio, Dante. The Circle was founded in 2020 after INCISES — a component of the Festival’s programming focused on today’s music — had been launched. It offers philanthropists a unique opportunity to be associated with the process of artistic creation, like veritable coproducers. The Cercle Incises allows donors to provide support over several years and to follow the work of creative teams step by step.

THE CLUB DES MÉCÈNES IS SUPPORTING THE CAREER OF ELSA DREISIG

For the first time, the Club des Mécènes is supporting the career of a young female artist: the Franco-Danish soprano Elsa Dreisig. She debuted at the Festival as an Académie artist and then in Carmen in 2017. The Club des Mécènes will be supporting her in 2022 as she takes on the title role in Salome. The Club des Mécènes unites a group of over 200 donors of all nationalities who are passionate about the Festival and wish to help promote it in France and abroad. In support of Elsa Dreisig, they will participate in a series of conferences structured around her career, her personality and her commitment.
