Festival International d'Art Lyrique d'Aix-en-Provence

Festival International d'Art Lyrique d'Aix-en-Provence

Big event this 2023 season. The Aix-en-Provence International Festival of Lyric Art, which will be held from 4 to 24 July 2023, is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

Since the first performance of Così fan tutte in 1948 , the Festival created by Gabriel Dussurget has become one of the great summer events. As a tribute to the very first edition, Mozart's masterpiece is once again being programmed but, as the festival requires! In a new production by Dmitri Tcherniakov. Among the performers chosen, festival-goers will be able to applaud Nicole Chevalier and Georg Nigl, expected to play the roles of Despina and Don Alfonso.

The highlight of the 75th anniversary of the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence is the opening performance of Weill's Die Dreigroschenoper (The Threepenny Opera), as the Comédie-Française troupe is performing in Aix for the first time in its history. This is Thomas Ostermeier's debut as director of an opera. Kurt Weill's and Bertold Brecht's work was written for actors who will be very well accompanied by the Le Balcon orchestra conducted by the excellent Maxime Pascal. As always, Aix has some nice surprises, like this other event. After the worldwide success of the opera Written on Skin, the composer Georges Benjamin returns with a new world premiere entitled "Picture a day like this". He reunites with playwright Martin Crimp after the enormous success of his previous opera, already premiered at the Aix-en-Provence Festival. With a superb Berg's Wozzeck performed by Christian Gerhaher (and Marie Malin Byström) and conducted by Simon Rattle. 56 performances are expected this summer with many highlights such as the three operas in concert version and grandiose posters.

Superstar Jonas Kaufmann is coming with the forces of the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples to sing Otello, opposite other superstars such as baritone Ludovic Tézier and soprano Maria Agresta. A great moment in perspective, as is Donizetti's Lucie de Lammermoor in French, sung by the stunning Lisette Oropesa, also accompanied by beautiful voices such as tenor Pene Patti and baritone Florian Sempey. The last opera in the concert version, Meyerbeer's The Prophet, reunites John Osborn and Anita Rachvelishvili, so what more can be said than that you should book your tickets as soon as possible?

This 75th edition of the Festival International d'Art Lyrique d'Aix-en-Provence also promises to be very attractive in terms of concerts. Klaus Mäkelä, an incredible conductor, will conduct Stravinsky's Russian ballets (The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring) with videos projected in the large space of the Stadium in Vitrolles. A challenge for the Orchestre de Paris, which shares the evenings of Aix-en-Provence with other highly talented ensembles such as the London Symphony Orchestra, which will give a concert conducted by Simon Rattle. Let's not forget the recitals of Asmik Grigorian, Pretty Yende and Christian Gerhaher to understand that this new Festival International d'Art Lyrique d'Aix-en-Provence promises to be exceptional.

Tickets should be booked as soon as possible so as not to miss anything of this 2023 anniversary season.
