This will be the musical Europe of July and August: the opera returns

Musical Europe returns strong in July and August. We review the intense upcoming programming. In Aix-en-Provence the opera has always been its emblem and in this edition “Falstaff” will be offered with musical direction by Rustioni and stage by Barrie Kosky (July 1 to 13); “Marriage of Figaro”, with Thomas Hengelbrock and Lotte de Beer respectively in moat and regal (July 2-14); “Tristan and Isolde” (July 2-15); “I due Foscari” in concert with Nucci, Meli and Rebeka (July 16); “El gallo de oro” (July 22-25) in a new production that will feature the aforementioned Rustioni and Barrie Kosky; Saariaho’s “Innocence” (July 3-12) and other lesser known ones. Rattle will return with the London Symphony (July 7) and Klaus Mäkelä will perform with the Paris Orchestra (July 13) and Nina Stemme will give a recital on July 19. Back to his best years.

Salzburg will recover part of what was canceled last year from July 17 to August 31 and its box office is almost sold. To the already seen, and not much praised productions, of “Cosi fan tutte” by Loi and “Elektra” by Warlikowski, will be added “Don Giovanni” with Castellucci in the regia and Currentzis in the pit; “Tosca” with Netrebko, Eyvazov and Tézier; Nono’s “Intolleranza”; “Il trionfo del tempo” with Carsen and Bartoli … As usual, concerts by great groups such as the five of the Vienna Philharmonic with Welser-Möst, Thielemann, Nelsons, Muti and Blomstedt or those of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, SWR Symphonieorchester, Orchester des Champs-Élysées, MusicAeterna, ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien, West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, Chicago Symphony Orchestra or Berliner Philharmoniker.
