Salzburg Festival 2012

Mozart’s presumably best-known opera, The Magic Flute, opens the series of new opera productions of the 2012 Salzburg Festival. Nikolaus Harnoncourt will lead the Mozart production on historic instruments.

Alexander Pereira, director of the Salzburg Festival, says: “It is not only a first for Salzburg, but also for Nikolaus Harnoncourt to perform this work in this sound-world in Salzburg, together with Concentus Musicus, bringing his entire life’s experience to bear on this production, and I am infinitely grateful to him for this gift,” Pereira expressed his delight.
