Open to female composers, playwrights, stage directors and conductors, aged under 40 on 2018, January 1st.

In light of the actual gender discrimination existing in the art field, the Festival d’Aix is organizing a Women Opera Makers Workshop that aims to offer tools, support and guidance to mid-career women in the opera industry to strengthen them in their art, in their ability to communicate that art and in the skills needed to navigate a male dominated profession.

The group of this workshop will be made of women composers, librettists, directors and conductors. All participant should have all been working professionally for at least 5 years and be very experienced in their respective fields.

British stage director Katie Mitchell with English-German theatre director Lily McLeish supervise this workshop.


This workshop is part of the Young Opera Makers programme of enoa (European Network of Operas Academies) and benefit of the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

With the support of
