About the Château du Seuil
"Since we acquired Château du Seuil in 2014, the revitalisation of its viticultural activity has been orientated towards excellence. It goes hand in hand with the desire to enhance the reputation of the region of Aix, its resources, its production and its talent. The notoriety of Aix-en-Provence owes much to its parliamentary and university traditions, its exceptional architectural heritage and the welcome that it has extended to an artistic expression of international renown.
An eagerness to promote the quality of its natural environment, already sublimely depicted in Cézanne's paintings, and showcase its wines and terroir, are part of a shared willingness to promote the immense cultural wealth of the city. The significance of the partnership with the Festival d'Aix is reflected in the shared common values - high standards creativity and a willingness to take risks." (signed Agnès and Robert Daussun)
About the International Festival d'Art Lyrique of Aix-en-Provence
Created in 1948, the International Festival d'Art Lyrique is a festival devoted to opera and classical music that takes place every year in Aix-en-Provence. It is one of the biggest opera and music festivals in Europe, and is famous worldwide. Nominated European Cultural Ambassador in 2013 and Best Opera Festival in 2014, the purpose of the Festival of Aix is to "make opera a living experience, an art that gives meaning to the world." The Festival is therefore committed to an approach with a clear philosophy: thinking of opera as a living art. The 69th Festival of Aix-en-Provence will take place from 3-22 July 2017. http://festival-aix.com
