Event Details

With Jonas Kaufmann
The first opera premiere of the Vienna Philharmonic at the 2012 Salzburg Festival – conducted by Daniel Harding – featured a familiar work in an unfamiliar guise: Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos had its world premiere in the original version one hundred years ago. The Salzburg Festival celebrated this anniversary as homage to the three founding fathers as well, since Strauss and Hofmannsthal dedicated this opera to Max Reinhardt.

“A hundred years have passed since Hofmannsthal began to work on this tale with the fiercely practical and dramaturgically highly talented Strauss, one hundred years since the disastrous world premiere of Ariadne auf Naxos. We take this ‘anniversary’ as an opportunity to revisit the original version. And where would this make more sense than in Salzburg?” (Sven-Eric Bechtolf).
