Festival Aix-En-Provence Reappoints General Director

By Francisco Salazar

The Festival Aix-en-Provence has reappointed its General Director.

The organization noted that due to a proposal made by its President, Paul Hermelin during a meeting between the Festival’s Board of Directors on Nov. 16 in Aix-en-Provence, it decided to renew Pierre Audi’s mandate.

The first mandate given to Pierre Audi in 2016 covered the five editions taking place between 2019 to 2023. His second mandate, which has exceptionally been extended to four years, will therefore cover the editions from 2024 to 2027.

Audi is an opera director who has worked at the Metropolitan Opera, La Monnaie, English National Opera, Wiener Staatsoper, Bayerische Staatsoper, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Real, and Paris Opera. He served as Artistic Director of the Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam and Park Avenue Armory in New York.
