Each year since 1948, the Aix-en-Provence Festival has offered a great variety of programs: opera productions, contemporary creations, rediscovery of Baroque masterpieces, chamber operas and exceptional concerts. In response to the cultural lockdown-restrictions, the festival this year offers a virtual edition, making lovers of classical music still get their money’s worth.
ARTE Concert is glad to present highlights of this special online programmation from Monday 6 to Wednesday 15 July. The audience will rediscover 10 operas of the last years, such as “Pelléas et Mélisande” (2016; Esa-Pekka Salonen, Katie Mitchell) or last year’s “Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny” (2019, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Ivo van Hove).
In addition, ARTE Concert presents a concert or recital every evening over the ten days with well-known figures of the classical music scene, such as Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kozena, Thomas Hengelbrock, Jakub Jozef Jozef Orlinski, Sabine Deveilhe and many others.
