Two directors, one Festival

Renaud Capuçon & Dominique Bluzet

Seven years ago, our ambition was to turn Aix-en-Provence into the French Salzburg.

After last year's visit from the Vienna State Opera, the Mozartwoche (Mozart Week) from Salzburg is to be our guest this year. Over a three-day period, the Mozartwoche, a veritable hymn to music itself, will be joining us to celebrate all we have accomplished over the past seven years, with its artistic director, Rolando Villazón.

Seven is the age of reason perhaps, but we are not yet drawing up balance sheets, merely realising how extraordinarily lucky we are to have the CIC in our corner. Thanks to the CIC, we have, in a short space of time, been able to imagine, invent, create and set up a musical event to rival any festival in Europe.

We expect to see you between April 13 and 28, for 27 concerts, five more than last year! Come and share a rare moment of togetherness with us in the haven that is Aix-en-Provence.
