Die Liebe der Danae • TerraceTalk with Franz Welser-Möst

( 27 Jul 2016 )  “The atmosphere at the rehearsals is wonderful, despite the fact that this difficult – and therefore rarely performed – work does present special challenges for the outstanding cast of singers and the Vienna Philharmonic. The wonderful results of a previous cooperation on a Strauss opera – namely Der Rosenkavalier in 2014 and 2015 – between Franz Welser-Möst, the Vienna Philharmonic and Krassimira Stoyanova seems to me to portend nothing but good for 2016,” says Festival President Helga Rabl-Stadler.

This Festival summer, the orchestra will appear not only during the Mozart Matinees, but the musicians will also perform under Ottavio Dantone’s baton at the Felsenreitschule in Mozart’s opera Così fan tutte.

published in: Opera

( 24 Jun 2016 ) For the first time in the history of the Salzburg Festival, Mozart’s complete Da Ponte cycle can be heard this year. Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni and Le nozze di Figaro, the libretti for which were all written by Lorenzo da Ponte, are among Mozart’s most popular operas next to Die Zauberflöte. But not only that: they are also considered the psychologically most astute and politically most charged of his works, having been written during insecure times: the French Revolution was about to begin, or in full swing already.

( 17 Jun 2016 ) “In the early 80ies – while I was a student in Vienna at the University of Applied Arts – I attended innumerable productions at the Salzburg Festival, and I fell hopelessly in love with the beauty and flair of this unique city. Twenty years later, a passionate dream of mine came true: I was invited to work for the Festival as a set and costume designer. It was a wonderful experience for me as an Austrian, and Salzburg has had a very special place in my heart ever since.”
