Festival in Aix-en-Provence 2012

Bernard Foccroulle implicitly responds to Pereira's disappointing operatic program of the Salzburger Festspiele 2012, by announcing the content of the Festival in Aix-en-Provence 2012.
Super Andreas Homoki will be directing one of 4+1 new productions, Katie Mitchell has a thing for modern and contemporary opera -- and she will keep doing this in Aix, and Richard Brunel's great talent will be tested on Le Nozze.
London Symphony Orchestra and Les Arts Florissants will of course be there too.

  • Le Nozze di Figaro,  dir- Richard Brunel, cnd- Jérémie Rhorer 
  • David et Jonathas [opera by Marc-Antoine Charpentier], dir- Andreas Homoki, cnd-  William Christie 
  • Written on Skin [new opera by George Benjamin, text by Martin Crimp], dir- Katie Mitchell, cnd- George Benjamin 
  • La Finta Giardiniera, dir- Vincent Boussard, cnd- Andreas Spering 
  • L'Enfant et les sortilèges, dir- Arnaud Meunier, cnd- Didier Puntos (young singers performing)
Aix does it better, indeed!
