Thanks to a rigid safety concept, the 100th aniversary season of Salzburg Festival will present two opera premieres on 1 + 2 August.

The Festival will open with "Elektra" by festival founder Richard Strauss, starring rising stars Ausrine Stundyte + Asmik Grigorian (named singer of the year 2019 by “Opernwelt”) in the stunning Felsenreitschule. Following the success of the acclaimed “Salome” production, Franz Welser-Möst will conduct the Vienna Philharmonic, and Krzysztof Warlikowski will bring the one-act opera of the ancient Greek tragedy about the revenge-seeking princess to life.

Christof Loy will present a new production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's “Così fan tutte” in the Großes Festspielhaus, again with the Vienna Philharmonic; this time conducted by emerging conductor Joana Mallwitz and a young opera ensemble including Marianne Crebassa, Elsa Dreisig, Andrè Schuen, and Bogdan Volkov.
Both productions will be shot in UHD/HDR.
