Aix-en-Provence rightly claims to be the capital of Provence. The superb city, which has a unique architectural and historical heritage, is also known worldwide thanks to its abundant cultural life. The International Festival of Lyric Art of Aix-en-Provence is one of the great must-sees of the international season.

With this stay, M&O offers you the opportunity to experience the Festival intensely with three of the most awaited shows this season. Baroque is in the spotlight with Idomeneo performed by, among others, the splendid Michael Spyres and Sabine Devieilhe. Along with Mozart's masterpiece, we also find the exceptional conductor Raphaël Pichon at the helm for a concert version of Gluck's impressive Orpheus and Eurydice revised by Berlioz. The intimate Théâtre du Jeu de Paume hosts a production of Monteverdi's L'Incoronazione di Poppea conducted by another great Baroque conductor, Leonardo Gracía Alarcón.

Another highlight, a private guide will take you on a tour of the magnificent city of Aix with a choice of the following themes: "The streets tell their own story", "Squares & Fountains", "The jewels of Aix", "Aix-in-Resistance", "Aix-in-Archaeology" or "Aix & Cézanne". This stay is an event with the promise of exceptional moments in a radiant city.
