2021 OPERA CREATION WORKSHOP
Workshop open to composers, playwrights, authors, stage directors and conductors... in mid-career.
This emblematic workshop of the Académie is a unique space for reflection, combing the different activities, backgrounds and aesthetics that make opera the multidisciplinary art that it is. The workshop is structured around daily panel discussions, live performances, and conferences with the artists and other professionals who programme the Festival. It is a place for dialogue, discovery, and intellectual and artistic stimulation, where the issues that affect opera today and tomorrow are freely reassessed. The workshop aims to elicit new artistic intentions while simultaneously strengthening and diversifying the participants’ professional networks.
After Amin Maalouf, Katie Michell, Peter Eötvös, Martin Crimp…, the workshop will be led by Andrea Breth, the award-winning German stage director of both theatre and opera, and the former artistic director of the Schaubühne in Berlin. Her participation in the workshop marks Andrea Breth’s second collaboration with the Festival d’Aix, for which she recreated her production of Wolfgang Rihm’s Jakob Lenz during the 2019 edition.
The workshop is exclusively held in English
