1969

26 July – 30 August

Leopold Lindtberg pursued untrodden paths with a new interpretation of Jedermann. He allowed God to appear on stage in person, presented the Devil as a club-footed law clerk with a catalogue of sins tucked under his arm, and stuck the Announcer in a monk’s habit. Even the long table to which Jedermann invites his guests – for ages a central item in the stage décor – gave way to small seated groups. Last year’s successful production of Cavalieri’s Rappresentazione di anima e di corpo moved to the Collegiate Church, where it remained in the repertoire until 1973. This was the first time since 1922 that the church was used as a Festival venue. Jean-Pierre Ponnelle continued his work with a new Così fan tutte conducted by Seiji Ozawa. The Italian diplomat Pietro Quaroni took up a highly topical issue in his ceremonial address: “Festivals in the Mass Media”.
