The Festival de Paques
has made a name for itself throughout Europe thanks to the shared enthusiasm of two men:
Renaud Capuçon and Dominique Bluzet, with support from Michel Lucas.
The Easter Festival is set in the heart in Provence, Aix, where everything is color,
music and sensation! For two weeks on each year, the entire city comes to life with free open-air
concerts providing non-elitist excellence for all and exceptional moments.
This year the 6th edition of the ‘’festival of emotion’’ how is it described, will take place
from 26.03. – 08.04. For the most part the Aix-en-Provence Easter Festival takes place in the
Grand Théâtre de Provence, as well as the Théâtre du Jeu de Paume.
For the first time ever the festival opening is reserved for the prestigious London
Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of maestro François-Xavier Roth. Along with the
magnificent violinist Renaud Capuçon they will perform Bartók, Stravinsky and Debussy.
The concert in honour of the centenary of Debussy’s death also draws special attention,
as well as the everlasting Mozart - Marriage of Figaro and piano pieces designed as the
new musical event for all the family. In Festival du Paques you can except to hear new
talents like the young prodigy Alma Deutscher, established artists and the best French
and foreign conductors.
