|Aspen Music Festival and School|
Founded in 1949, the Aspen Music Festival and School is regarded as one of the top classical music festivals in the United States, noted both for its concert programming and its musical training of mostly young-adult music students. The typical eight-week summer season includes more than 400 classical music events, including concerts by five orchestras, solo and chamber music performances, fully staged opera productions, master classes, lectures, and children's programming, and brings in 100,000 audience members. In the winter, the AMFS presents a small series of recitals and Metropolitan Opera Live in HD screenings.

Based in border marches country between England and Wales, the Presteigne Festival's six music-filled days span the August Bank Holiday period. Established over thirty years ago, the Festival has a long tradition of supporting young artists and for presenting a fresh and individually stylised mix of contemporary works carefully balanced with twentieth century classics and featuring a wide range of music from the standard repertoire.

When Richard Wagner sketched his ideas for a festival in 1850, his initial thoughts were of a venue in Zurich or Weimar, and later Munich. Twenty years later Hans Richter drew him to a vacant opera house in the city of Bayreuth. Wagner liked the city, but the building was unsuitable for performances of The Ring. It took until 13 August 1876, when a new opera house had finally been built, for the first Bayreuth Festival to begin.
In 2019 there will be performances of Tannhäuser, Lohengrin, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Parsifal and Tristan und Isolde.
|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.
