October 10, 2014 | Concert | Russian Kaleidoscope

This concert is dedicated to Russian chamber vocal music that is rarely performed in the United States. While interest in Russian operas has increased over the last decades in America, Russian romances (art songs) are virtually absent from the concert halls. This repertoire is unique and prolific. The program will range from operatic arias and romances by Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninov to classical and jazz pieces for the clarinet and guitar improvisations.

October 16, 2014 | Screening | Salzburg Festival & Austrian Cultural Forum present: LA TRAVIATA

It was the opera event at the 2005 Salzburg Festival: Willy Decker's version of Verdi's La Traviata featuring the dream team of Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón was greeted by an extraordinary media hype and can now be relived on Kapitelplatz. In Verdi's music, death is present from the very first note.
