Program notes

The first opera premiere of the Wiener Philharmoniker at the 2012 Salzburg Festival – conducted by Daniel Harding – will feature a familiar work in an unfamiliar guise: Richard Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos had its world premiere in the original version one hundred years ago. The Salzburg Festival celebrates this anniversary as homage to the three founding fathers as well, since Strauss and Hofmannsthal dedicated this opera to Max Reinhardt.
