The opening of the Salzburg Festival is near! It’s time for special musical experiences taking place in buildings of extraordinary architecture, as will happen with Aribert Reimann’s opera „Lear“. Staged in the Felsenreitschule with its stone arcade wall by young director Simon Stone, it will present a high-caliber cast and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
