In your this year's program book, you quote the conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt with the words: "art must be an adversary and Opposition." This is your battle cry? The Salzburg festival find, therefore, instead of games this year, despite the Corona?

Helga Rabl-Stadler: I can answer that with a quote from Harnoncourt: "If we, the artists, are good, then people will go else out of the show, as they got into it". We would like to give the people back this experience, there is no substitute. I've doubted for a Minute that we are going to play in this summer. We had always in view: How this devastating Virus developed? And what, then, is in compliance with the health protection possible? We did, I think, the right thing to be seen. You can see now, as the Openings in the weekly distance increase. And these Openings can also be used for arts.
What can we expect in terms of content, at the Salzburg festival in 2020?
Markus hinterhäuser: There will be from every Genre. We will show in the Opera "Elektra". The Opera is short, has no Pause, and a very manageable staff on the stage. In the orchestra pit, it looks a little different. We are still Möst in the vote, with Franz Welser-most. But the reduction of the occupation is more likely to be low. In addition, there are regular Corona-Tests for all Involved. But we are going to show "Elektra": directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski, with Asmik Grigorian as Chrysothemis. This production will be taken up again next year. All the other great productions I need to move into the next year. The "Don Giovanni", a work of Romeo Castellucci, we will move, as "The magic flute". We will, however, make a Mozart Opera, and "Così fan tutte": the reduced sample time, a very manageable stage, but as a proof that you can do in this time, there are also other ways a wonderful Mozart Opera. Joana Mallwitz is conducting Christof Loy, directed, with Elsa Thirty, Marianne Crebassa and Lea Desandre in the Ensemble.
And in the drama?
behind the houses: Because we are busy of course, with the "Everyman" and the world premiere of a new play by Peter Handke, "Zdenek Adamec". Even "Everywoman", a one-person piece by Milo Rau. Every Sunday in August, we give it the number "Talking about the century". It begins with Alexander Kluge and Georg Baselitz. The second speech is to keep Navid Kermani, the third Anita Lasker-Wallfisch; the fourth speech with Elisabeth Orth will be a literary.Date Of Update: 12 June 2020, 18:19
