The Salzburg Festival looks forward to a very special world premiere as part of the coming season’s programme. Under the baton of composer Marc-André Dalbavie and directed by Luc Bondy, the life story and artistic oeuvre of Charlotte Salomon will become the basis of an opera. In her fascinating work Leben? oder Theater?, a unique combination of images, texts and musical quotations, the young Jewish artist tried to come to terms with the dramatic events of her life. This work inspired Dalbavie for his composition.

From one Alpine People to Another

I am driving a car through the Salzburger Land, this exceptionally beautiful region. Without a plan, keeping eyes and mouth open, I meander through the Wiestal. At the reservoir I stop and jump into the refreshing, deep-turquoise water; then I continue towards Wolfgangsee, past Fuschlsee (which I really want to hike around one day). Again and again, I stop and have to look at the mountains. I am overcome with a great longing to climb every single one of them and to hike through the valleys. As soon as the rehearsals are over and we are only performing in the evenings, I will assault one hill or the other!

How does one approach a work with such a long tradition as Jedermann? The two directors Julian Crouch and Brian Mertes have sought their very own path to realising the mystery play on Cathedral Square, inspired both by the past and the future.

Brian Mertes and Julian Crouch about the new production "Jedermann"

7 JUN 2013

by FESTSPIELKIEBITZ  15:15 h;
published in: Drama

Ideally we would like to be able to meet each of you in person in order to tell you what Jedermann means to us and how we are approaching our production. However, as our rehearsals have now begun and these are demanding our full attention, we regret that this will simply not be possible. We therefore hope that this will offer you some insight into what we are doing.
