|Salzburg Whitsun Festival|
Cecilia Bartoli: 'I will pay homage to the castrati at the 2019 Salzburg Whitsun Festival. Being a festival of music, I would also like to focus on the moment of artistic climax and, in a way, the beginning of the end of the castrato craze in classical music history. I hope to show how castrati made such a huge impact on music lovers of the day, through their music and their singing.'
|20 July 2019 until 31 August 2019|
|Salzburg Summer Festival|
The opening premiere will be Mozart's Idomeneo. Here, the ruler - torn between duty to the gods and love for his family - is forced to deliberate and take action. This contrasts with the awareness lacked by the title character of George Enescu's opera Oedipe: he becomes guilty without fault. Family conflicts and political disputes also appear in the gripping plot of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra, a work which recalls the fateful intricacies familiar to us from the great mythic tales of humanity's ancient past.
