Poland’s Warlikowski directs Salzburg Festival opener

01.08.2020 13:30
A new production of Richard Strauss’s Electra, which opens the jubilee, 100th Salzburg Festival on August 1, is directed by Poland’s Krzysztof Warlikowski. At 58, he is one of Europe’s most sought-after directors.

In an extensive profile of Warlikowski, The New York Times wrote a few days ago: “His stagings have sometimes divided audiences, though his work is always highly anticipated — even more so here in this pandemic year, when his Electra will be one of the few shows in town. […]Mr. Warlikowski’s treatment of the classics isn’t just about fleshing out their psychological motivations. He also wants to show how these ancient stories can resonate now.”

Warlikowski has served as artistic director of Warsaw’s Nowy Theatre since 2008.

Two Polish musicians are also billed in Salzburg. Pianist Jan Lisiecki accompanies baritone Matthias Goerner in a recital of  Beethoven’s songs, and tenor Piotr Beczała, together with mezzosoprano Tanja Ariane Baumgartner, appear as the soloists in Gustav Mahler’s The Song of the Earth, with the ORF Radio-Symphnieorchester from Vienna, conducted by Kent Nagano.

The programme of the Salzburg Festival has been scaled down because of the coronavirus pandemic. Out of 212 planned events only 90 will be performed live.

The festival ends on August 30.
