Opera Creation workshop

with Klaus Bertisch

29 June - 07 July 2018

Festival d’Aix-en-Provence

The Opera Creation Workshop is open each year to young creators from all disciplines and is a place for reflection and discussion on artistic opera-related issues. This workshop seeks to define current values of opera and the tasks it will assume in the future.

A process of reflection will take place, focussing equally on opera performance today and on the multidisciplinary aspects that it encompasses. Opera – as a genre, as a cultural offering and as a cultural practice – is the main subject of these discussions.


The dramaturge Klaus Bertisch, who works for the Dutch National Opera & Ballet in Amsterdam amongst other places, will be in charge of leading this workshop. No doubt he will be able to illustrate his ideas with real-life experience from his own career and open up the debate in a constructive manner.
