Mozart lives! As a core project of Rolando Villazón’s second Mozart Week, theatre artist Robert Wilson is staging Der Messias, K. 572, Mozart’s version of Handel’s oratorio.

The 2020 Salzburg Easter Festival will be presenting a very special version of Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo. On behalf of the Salzburg Easter Festival and the Semperoper Dresden, Manfred Trojahn composed a new instrumental prologue for the four-act version of the opera. The cast of soloists is nothing short of extraordinary.
