Festival d’Aix—en—Provence
3 — 23 JUILLET 2024

FESTIVAL D’AIX—EN—PROVENCE
BEST FESTIVAL AWARD 2023 INTERNATIONAL OPERA AWARDS

Opera neither replicates nor diverts us from a world which grows more and more confusing with every day that passes. It links this world with times immemorial and primeval passions, nurturing their brilliant impact with its inimitable riches.

Iphigenia, the granddaughter of Atreus, morphs from victim to murderess, Samson the chosen one is marked out by his strength to the point of bloodshed, Butterfly’s vulnerability drives her to her death: the festival of 2024 is peopled by these powerfully ambivalent destinies. We are faced with a storm of violence, madness and destruction; but these are balanced by fidelity, will power, the fight for justice and freedom. Here we find human fragility fighting against its own barbarity by means of the most sublime and passionate of languages.

Les Boréades, création scénique mondiale (1982)

A 2024 PROGRAMME IN TUNE WITH ITS HISTORY

The Festival d'Aix-en-Provence presents an unparalleled event every year, but its main themes are rooted in 75 years of prestigious and unique artistic history. The 2024 vintage is built around two main themes: French opera and Baroque music – both of which have been at the heart of the Festival's repertoire since it was founded in 1948 by Gabriel Dussurget.
