Special Project Salzburg Festival 2022

(Vienna, June 22, 2022) For the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, the summer of 2022 will be marked by the extraordinarily prestigious invitation of the Salzburg Festival, in the context of which TEODOR CURRENTZIS will collaborate with the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester for the first time. This collaboration will manifest itself on the one hand in the opening concert of the 2022 Salzburg Festival – as already in 2021 – with Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13 “Babi Yar”, and on the other hand with a staged opera production – directed by Romeo Castelucci – , which will be the opening premiere of the 2022 Salzburg Festival: Bela Bartók’s opera Duke Bluebeard’s Castle will be combined with Carl Orff’s De temporum fine comoedia, premiered by Herbert von Karajan at the 1973 Salzburg Festival. This staged production can be experienced a total of six times between July 26 and August 20, 2022.
