Come celebrate with us! Twenty-five years of the Festspielhaus, this of course calls for a celebration. You can look forward to Joyce DiDonato, THE mezzo-soprano star from America, along with New York’s Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and its chief conductor and good friend of the Festspielhaus Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The program promises to be fantastic, quite literally: it will include Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, along with parts from the composer’s opera Les Troyens. A deeper meaning lies behind the program selection: the French composer and Romantic invented the idea of the festival – and immediately tried it out in Baden-Baden.
