Cecilia the Intendant

Here is the announcement for the 2012 Salzburg Whitsun Festival as designed by Cecilia Bartoli. It runs from May 25 to 28, 2012, and the tickets go on sale next week.

The centerpiece for the festival was a staged Giulio Cesare, and quite a lot of very flashy stuff has been added on the central theme of Cleopatra.  Netrebko, Koch, Kasarova, Beczala, Jaroussky, Gens, von Otter, Scholl. This is a very impressive lineup.

A wonderful program, indeed. Finally there is an intelligent design for a fstival - a festival should bring something really special, something which enlightens us, brings us closer to our culture......

So: are you going ?

Of Cecilia's up coming performances, the one I feel most inclined to see is Otello.
