Cecilia Bartoli to lead Salzburg Whitsun Festival

The designated Artistic Director of the Salzburg Festival, Alexander Pereira, has appointed Cecilia Bartoli Artistic Leader of the Salzburg Whitsun Festival starting in 2012. Every year, one opera will be produced by the Festival for Salzburg and performed at least twice on the Whitsun weekend. Around the opera, concerts will take place which expand the focus of the year. The main innovation is that the opera produced for Whitsun will also be featured on the summer program with the same cast.
The detailed program will be announced at a later date.
