The Festival International d’Art Lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence is a summer opera festival founded by Countess Lily Pastre in 1948. The beauty of Aix makes it a perfect location for a festival, as guests can also enjoy the city during their stay.

The festival lasts for three weeks, and consists of six opera productions, as well as a series of diverse concerts. These performances take place at a variety of noted locations around the city, such as the Grand Théâtre de Provence, the Théâtre du Grand Saint-Jean, and the Théâtre de l’Archevêché. Opera stars, including Montserrat Caballe, Jose Carreras, Marilyn Horne have performed here in the past. Today Anna Netrebko, Karita Mattel and Sir Simon Rattle continue this legacy.

While it is a comparatively young festival—celebrating its sixtieth anniversary in 2008—it has quickly become an integral and important opera festival. It is currently directed by Bernard Foccroulle, and this year will premiere The Monster in the Maze, by Jonathan Dove.
