Idomeneo Trailer
In this opera, the super-natural element is in fact the natural world: the god Neptune and the sea he embodies as an ancestral force for both healing and destruction inundates the human race with questions of moral reckoning. It is the angry oceans who respond to human violations of a larger, cosmic code. This overwhelming masterpiece by the impatient and supremely gifted young Mozart raises urgent questions related to climate change and its impact on oceans and populations.

Médée Trailer
Simon Stone, whose production of Aribert Reimann’s Lear was a highlight of the 2017 Salzburg Festival, will explore in a decidedly contemporary context how it is possible for Medea to act as she does. How does it come to that deed — carried out in anything but a rampage — that in the breaking of an ultimate taboo constitutes the egregious offence of this figure: the killing of her own children?

Orphée aux enfers Trailer
With Orphée aux enfers (Orpheus in the Underworld, 1858) Jacques Offenbach turned the myth of "Orpheus and Eurydice" on its head. Barrie Kosky makes his debut at the Salzburg Festival with this "opéra-buffon". Learn more in the video!

Alcina Trailer

Simon Boccanegra Trailer
Andreas Kriegenburg stages Giuseppe Verdi's opera Simon Boccanegra at the Salzburg Festival this year. The opera is perhaps Verdi's most personal, and certainly his darkest work, in which family and political conflicts clash inexorably.
14. August 2019
Œdipe Trailer
For his Œdipe George Enescu created a grandiose musical cosmos, which at its time — the mid-1920s — while it could hardly be called avant garde, was in fact innovative. Although it is scored for large forces including many special instruments, the singing voices are not overwhelmed.

Salome Trailer
The audience and media agreed in 2018 that Richard Strauss' Salome was an overwhelming experience which would go down in the history of the Salzburg Festival. In 2019 the same cast has assembled for the revival - witness the incomparable Asmik Grigorian (Salome), John Daszak (Herod), Anna Maria Chiuri (Herodias), Gabor Bretz (Jochanaan) and Julian Prégardien (Narraboth).

The Outraged
Two siblings have come to the town hall early in the morning. A bag containing their brother’s body lies between them. The two siblings, a sister and a brother, couldn’t be more different: one is the town’s mayor and the other a bohemian type who gets by with various odd jobs.

Youth without God Trailer
Having recently staged Ödön von Horváth’s 1931 ‘folk play’ Italienische Nacht (Italian Night), Thomas Ostermeier now tackles a second text by the author from the 1930s, with his dramatization of the novel Jugend ohne Gott (Youth Without God), dealing with the collapse of democracy and civil society.
17. August 2019
Liliom Trailer
Director Kornél Mundruczó intends to approach the ‘suburban legend in seven scenes’, as the work is subtitled, from the end: Liliom is already dead and has been called to answer for his deeds at the last judgement. This involves looking back on a distant time when things were different.
26. August 2019
Summerfolk Trailer
Gorky’s Summerfolk demonstrates incredible potential for a future society based on contemplation. The intellectual clout of the people who gather together in the play is immense. They unravel their own existence with analytical precision and ask the right questions, but don’t act. Instead, they become entangled in the highly emotional world of their own thoughts.
