Don Giovanni (W.A. Mozart)

The opera Don Giovanni, then more commonly known in its German version as Don Juan, was the first opera to be performed at the Salzburg Festival, conducted by Richard Strauss in 1922. Romeo Castellucci and Teodor Currentzis are responsible for the new production of Don Giovanni in 2021.

Speeches about the century

From the beginning, the Salzburg Festival had an extraordinary mission: to create meaning in times of crisis. The Festival’s 2021 programme will again feature lectures about the century, devoted to exploring the question of whether the belief in the power of the arts — of which our founding fathers were convinced — still endows the Festival with meaning in our changed times. In doing so, the lectures will invoke the world of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
