Salzburg Festival Whitsun 2017 - IMLAUER Hotels & Restaurants

Salzburg Festival Whitsun 2017

From the 2nd to the 5th of June 2017 the Whitsun festival will again take place in Salzburg. Those who have not yet booked a hotel room should not wait too long anymore. It is a busy time in Salzburg. The festival offers a great variety of international artists and first class musical enjoyment.


Cecilia Bartoli in a new role

In this year, Cecilia Bartoli has taken over the artistic superintendence of the festival. The festival heading „Joy of grief“ „invokes times long past“ (introductory words, festival program). Romanticism, fairy tale world and dream journey seem to be the keywords of this year’s program and arouse our curiosity on Cecilia Bartolis artistic design.


A powerful program

Cecilia Bartoli herself will appear as „Ariodante“  in the correspondent opera from Georg Friedrich Händel. In the concertante performance of the opera „La donna del lago“ from Gioachino Rossini she will appear as Elena. Another highlight of the festival will be an anniversary concert form Anna Sophie Mutter with works from Franz Schubert and Antonio Vivaldi. The ballet „La Sylphide“ brings the Ballet of the Mariinski-Theatre, St. Petersburg to Salzburg.
