Deemed today’s most exciting Mozart conductor and highly acclaimed for his revolutionary Da-Ponte Cycle, Teodor Currentzis takes on two major works of Mozart’s last period for his long awaited debut at the Salzburg Festival: “La clemenza di Tito”, Mozart’s final opera, and the Requiem. The current Artistic Director of the Perm State Opera and Ballet Theatre and “Opera conductor of the year 2016” (Opernwelt) is accompanied by his MusicAeterna and MusicAeterna Chamber Choir, both founded in 2004.
For the Requiem, Currentzis assembles a fine quartet of excellent young soloists: Anna Prohaska, Katharina Magiera, Mauro Peter and Tareq Nazmi. Salzburg’s incomparable Felsenreitschule gives an ideal mystical backdrop for this masterwork of sacred music.
For “La clemenza di Tito” Currentzis joins forces with award winning director Peter Sellars, with whom he has established a successful long-term collaboration. Known himself as Mozart rebel for his unique contemporary stagings of Mozart’s operas, Sellars will direct the opera also for the screen.
A co-production of ORF, ORF/3sat and Unitel in collaboration with the Salzburg Festival.
