The festival has just rolled out plans for eight operas, two of them in concert.

The eyecatchers are a new Katya Kabanova directed by Barrie Kosky with Corinne Winters in the title role, Jakub Hrusa conducting the Vienna Philharmonic.

Asmik Grigorian will sing all three leading roles in Puccini’s Il trittico in a Christof Loy production.

Elena Stikhina will be Salzburg’s new Aida.

    Joana Mallwitz already conducted Vienna Philharmonic at the Salzburg Festival 2020 and 2021. Both years she did Cosí fan tutte.

  • Alan says:

    “Joanna Mallwitz will get her first go with the Vienna Phil.”

    Really? Cosi Fan Tutte, 2020 and 2021???

  • Olivier says:

    Yuja Wang plays the Turangalila-Symphonie. Oooh!

  • Maria says:

    See if Covid doesn’t lock it all down again with yet another variant by then. Good luck with the plan.

    • Tamino says:

      I just got a virus making toy laboratory set for the kids for Xmas. Hopefully nothing goes wrong. Also worried the Pfizer employee kids will get even more potent toy laboratories.
      I mean, anyone can modify these virus these days. It’s great fun for the whole family and the whole world.

  • Bruno Bonetti says:

    Asmik Grigoryan è un soprano dalla classe sopraffina.
