Fondation Avenches Opera especially aims to serve as a musical reference point and to be a key annual event on the opera calendar. At the same time, opera productions are made accessible to the greatest number of people in the magical setting of the Aventicum Arenas. The Avenches Opera also procures the participation of some of the world’s greatest operatic voices and does its very best to manage for many more years of successful events.
The originality of this concept brings together an audience of all ages, from all levels of society; and from both new, as well as seasoned opera buffs! Our audiences are certain to be enthralled by each performance. A unique setting, artists of international renown, quality production and sumptuous sets all now contribute to making Avenches a not-to-be-missed occasion for all opera-lovers in Switzerland and throughout the world. Every year, the quality of the programming and performers is widely acclaimed both by the media (notably in several hundreds of articles in the Swiss press) and by the attending public.
