Salzburg
Salzburg Festival
The Salzburg Festival 2021 - 168 performances at 17 venues are planned from July 17 to August 31. In normal times, this would probably not be worth a headline, but in these weeks and months, the announced program resembles the "hottest spot for festivals," as President Helga Rabl-Stadler puts it.
As a new production, the always Mozart-savvy audience can look forward to a "Don Giovanni" from the hand of Romeo Castellucci under the musical direction of Teodor Currentzis. Carried over from last year are the celebrated "Elektra" and "Così fan tutte."
Lars Eidinger and Verena Altenberger are the new faces of "Jedermann," the "perennial favorite" on Cathedral Square since 1920. Wonderful concert programs, plays, song recitals - thoughtfully put together for years by artistic director Markus Hinterhäuser - complete the diverse program.
The founding idea of the festival seems more topical today than it has for a long time. In the midst of the First World War, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Max Reinhardt and Richard Strauss had the dream of creating a festival that would bring people together and promote peace. Since then, the Salzburg Festival "in the heart of Europe" has been committed to representing the entire world of culture. From South to North, West to East, from Mozart to Nono.
Whether long-time aficionados or curious first-time visitors, Salzburg and its summer festival cast a spell over every music enthusiast.
