In Shanghai, Helga Rabl-Stadler gave insights into the Festival programme to more than one hundred invited guests of the main sponsor ROLEX on Tuesday of this week. The guests passed through an atmosphere-rich replica of the Hofstallgasse in Salzburg constructed by ROLEX into the ballroom of the Hotel Peninsula in Shanghai. The opera star Ildar Abdrazakov flew in from St. Petersburg and was accompanied by Alessandro Misciasci in arias by Mozart, Rakhmaninov and Verdi. In the summer of 2015 he will appear in Salzburg in Giuseppe Verdi’s Ernani under the baton of Riccardo Muti. The Festival’s partnership with ROLEX began in 2012. Its contract as global sponsor of the Salzburg Festival and exclusive sponsor of the Salzburg Whitsun Festival runs until 2021.

The 2015 Opera Programme

6 NOV 2014

Masters and servants, the powerful and the powerless, oppression and protest – these binary oppositions provide the themes of the opera and drama programmes of the Festival in 2015. Reconciling people to that inequality – which is reflected not only in wealth and poverty, liberty and constraint, but which determines all social conditions, even the most personal of relationships – appears to have been a challenge as urgent as it is insoluble throughout the ages.

The 2015 Concert Programme

Designing a concert programme is like weaving. Like a textile’s warp, there are given constants that create structure. In our case, these are the traditional series featuring the Vienna Philharmonic, the series of guest orchestras, Salzburg’s Mozarteum Orchestra, the Salzburg Camerata, great soloists and song recitalists of our times, intriguing chamber music formations and the most interesting performers of New Music – every year, we weave all of these into new patterns with other weft threads. Many of these threads take their origin in the Ouverture spirituelle and give rise to other series in their own right.

Review of The Opera and Concert Programme 2014

1 SEP 2014

published in: Opera, Concert, General

The 94th edition of the Salzburg Festival began with a highly atmospheric, sold-out Ouverture spirituelle. The overwhelming rendition of the Vespro della Beata Vergine by John Eliot Gardiner at the Cathedral and the concert featuring Mozart’s final symphonies with Nikolaus Harnoncourt were early highlights of an immensely successful Festival season which attracted more than 270,000 guests.
