The international opera festival of Aix-en-Provence

Established in 1948, the international opera festival of Aix-en-Provence has become one of the highlights of the international opera lovers' calendar, bringing together tens of thousands of enthusiasts every year.Originally, the festival was under the auspices of Mozart and the first work was Cosi fan tutte. The performances took place in the open court in the courtyard of the Archbishopric. The festival has gradually gained on the city, ringing out the most beautiful voices of lyrical art in the cathedral of Saint-Sauveur, on the Place des Quatre-Dauphins, Place des Cardeurs, at the bottom of the Sainte- Victoire, but also at the Hôtel Maynier d'Oppède, the Jeu de Paume theater or the Grand Théâtre de Provence, inaugurated in 2007.Today, it is the whole city of Aix-en-Provence who get enthusiastic for the opera during the first weeks of July. Thanks to a voluntarist broadcasting policy and performances given in public places in particular, the festival has been able to expand its audience and reach new audiences. Thus, there are a number of workshops and animations that are suggested for the youngest. Aix-en-Provence is smashing the elitist reputation of opera and convinces the most skeptical.
