The Salzburg Festival and Schlumberger • Two Austrian cultural traditions joining forces

14 MAR 2014

by FESTSPIELKIEBITZ  12:53 h;
published in: General

When musical theatre depicts the enjoyment of life or love, sparkling wine often comes into play – at least from the mid-19th century onwards. It is not surprising that the love-hungry gourmet Falstaff was drawn to this libation early on. In Otto Nicolai’s Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor (1849) he sings: „When I was a young boy at my mother’s breast […] sparkling wine was my delight.” The cooperation of the two traditional Austrian brands reinforces the association of sparkling wine and champagne with the cultural enjoyment of opera, theatre and concerts.

The Salzburg Festival Mourns Claudio Abbado

published in: General

“For weeks, we have been afraid of this. Claudio Abbado is dead. The music world has lost one of its very greatest. He never sought to triumph, but probably that is why his interpretations became such triumphs. We in Salzburg must also bid farewell to a musician who gave our audiences extraordinary experiences for decades. There are few conductors whose reviews used the words ‘magic moments’ so often. Few other conductors received such surging waves of applause even after difficult works. The Festival is grateful that we were able to have him here in Salzburg. He lives on in us through his work,” Festival President Helga Rabl-Stadler said in a first reaction.
