published in: General

The fact that Salzburg is occasionally a magical place can be experienced first-hand by our youngest guests, as they discover this year’s children’s opera The Fairy Queen, produced especially for the Salzburg Festival. The audience is taken on a journey into the magical world of Titania, Queen of the Fairies. The opera, lasting approximately 60 minutes, has been conceived based on motifs from William Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen.

Concerts 2016

5 NOV 2015

published in: Concert

Four world religions – Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism – were illuminated musically by the Ouverture spirituelle during the past four years. This year, our attention turns to sacred music of the churches of Eastern Christianity, which have developed a rich diversity of forms. The conviction that no instrument is better able than the human voice to adequately express the effect of the Holy Spirit manifests itself in sumptuous choral works, which are still performed from Africa to Asia.

The Salzburg Festival Mourns the Passing of Luc Bondy

29 NOV 2015

published in: General

We owe much to him, as a human being and an artist.
With SalomeLe nozze di FigaroDas Gleichgewicht and Charlotte Salomon, he created four unforgettable productions in Salzburg, and we were always in touch about new projects which will now, alas, never happen. 
Luc Bondy was a playful and profound human being, an homme de lettres and a man of life. A lover, a player, a wise man.
