The operas for this summer from the Salzburg Festival are:
Thomas Adès The exterminating
angel with Anne Sofie Von Otter, Charles
Workman, Eric Halfvarson,
Richard Strauss Die liebe Der Danae.
Faust with Piotr Beczala, Ildar Abdrazakov,
Maria Agresta, Tara Erraught
West Side Story with Cecilia Bartoli .
All 3 Mozart/da Ponte operas will play. Don Giovanni is very much the same as last year. Nozze di Figaro also streamed last year.
Manon Lescaut with Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov.
il Templario with Juan Diego Flórez and Joyce DiDonato
I always want to see things I haven't seen before. My choices are:
Manon Lescaut for Anna
West Side Story for Cecilia
The Exterminating Angel
Il Templario for Juan Diego and Joyce
Die liebe der Danae to get a better idea of it.
