Aix-en-Provence rightly claims to be the capital of Provence. The superb city which has a unique architectural and historical heritage is world famous also thanks to an abundant cultural life. A true open-air festival, the Festival International d'Art Lyrique d'Aix-en-Provence is one of the major unmissable events of the international season.

With this stay, M&O offers you the opportunity to experience the Festival intensely with the performances of the most anticipated shows this season. Three masterpieces are on display with superb distributions and each time, artistic proposals worthy of the Festival's reputation.

Mozart's nozze di Figaro is a must in Aix. The flagship opera of the Festival is directed by Thomas Hengelbrock, a fine musician at the head of a dazzling cast which includes, among others, Lea Desandre and Julie Fuchs. The very great voices of Nina Stemme and Stuart Skelton come together for the highlight of the 2021 edition. Wagner's Tristan und Isolde performed for the very first time in Aix. The great Simon Rattle directs with the expected staging of Simon Stone. Another big name on the scene, Barrie Kosky is in charge of the earthy Falstaff, Verdi's last opera with an exceptional cast here again (Stéphane Degout, Christopher Purves, Carmen Giannattasio, Daniela Barcellona ...).


Another highlight, a private guide takes you to discover the magnificent Aix with a visit to choose from among the following themes: “The streets are told”, “Places & Fontaines”, “The jewels of Aix”, ”Aix -en-Resistance ”,” Aix-en-Archéologie ”or even” Aix & Cézanne ”.

This stay is an event with the promise of exceptional moments in a radiant city.
