  • Giuseppe Verdi I VESPRI SICILIANI (Plácido Domingo)

  • Morton Feldman NEITHER

  • Händel / Mozart DER MESSIAS (Mozart's arrangement of Handel's Messiah orchestrated for an orchestra of his time and translated into German.  The San Francisco Symphony performed this when I was in the chorus.  At Salzburg it will be staged.)

There will be a distinguished selection of plays in German.
