Festival: Salzburg Festival

Biography

Salzburg Festival 2018

Operas, drama and concerts of the 2018 Salzburg Festival present works characterized by passion and ecstasy. In Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea violence and eroticism are skilfully interwoven. Hans Werner Henze’s The Bassarids is the triumph of intoxication over reason. In drama, the nameless hero in Knut Hamsun’s Hunger is driven by his obsessions.
