All the women who ever conducted at the Salzburg Festivalmain
Our allies on the high redoubt have been scouring the dungeons for traces of gender diversity. Here’s the ultimate list:

Julia Jones jumped in five times in Die Entführung aus dem Serail in 2004, replacing Marcello Viotti. She also led a Mozart Matinee.
Dominique My conducted a Nono-to-Neuwirth programee on August 8, 1998.

Sian Edwards conducted Scelsi on August 7, 2007
