The Salzburg Festival is considered “the largest and most important annual event in classical music” (New York Times) and from this year’s edition Unitel, exclusive audiovisual partner of the Festival since many years, presents a fine selection of highlights: seven operas (on three evenings) and four concerts!

There is Giacomo Puccini’s “Il trittico”, an opera trilogy consisting of three one-act operas, staged by Christof Loy and starring Asmik Grigorian, who achieves the impossible and performs the main role in all three opera acts.

Corinne Winters in Barrie Kosky’s staging of “Káťa Kabanová” conducted by Jakub Hrůša was this year’s new discovery.

Bartók’s “Bluebeard’s Castle”, a highlight of early 20th century musical theatre, was presented in a double bill together with Carl Orff’s “De temporum fine comoedia”. In his staging of the two works, Romeo Castellucci, reveals the profound connections in their juxtaposition between interiority and explosion of violent power.

The recording of Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony completes "Bruckner 11", the first Bruckner Cycle with Christian Thielemann and the Wiener Philharmoniker.

More concert performances are featuring Daniel Barenboim, Lang Lang, Andris Nelsons, Yefim Bronfman and Juan Diego Flórez.
