Famed director Romeo Castelluci returns to Festival d’Aix-en-Provence after the 2019 success of Requiem, a unique operatic production of Mozart’s iconic requiem mass. Castelluci will lead an operatic staging of Mahler’s 2nd Symphony on an extremely grand scale, including over 70 dancers and actors and 100 choir members, with the Orchestre de Paris. Abu Dhabi Festival’s support for the production continues the rich history of collaboration with Festival d’Aix-en-Provence and is joined by co-producers including New York City’s Park Avenue Armory and the San Francisco Opera, where Resurrection will also be staged. The opera is evocative of hope for, and finally the realisation of, a spectacular renewal after a pandemic winter.
