I will be participating composer at the 2020 Opera Creation Workshop of the Academie of Festival D’Aix-en-Provence, which – due to the current pandemic – will take place as a shorter version, from June 22 – 26. The workshop will be under guidance of renowned Franco-Lebanese writer Amin Maalouf, who has been part of the Académie Française since 2011.
“Offered for several years to young creators from all disciplines, the Opera Creation Workshop is a place for reflection and discussion on artistic opera-related issues. This workshop seeks to define and discuss current values of opera and the tasks it will assume in the future. A process of reflection will take place, focusing equally on opera performance today and on the multidisciplinary aspects that it encompasses. Opera – as a genre, as a artistic offering and as a cultural practice – is the main subject of these discussions.”
