NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCES

From Salzburg, La Scala is about to see that which the international press has heralded as one of the finest productions at the Festival in the last 10 years. The director is a giant of German theatre, Harry Kupfer, while the musical authoritativeness is guaranteed by the presence on the podium of Zubin Mehta. Baron Ochs will be played by Günther Groissböck, an excellent singer who is able to perform in Viennese dialect in accordance with tradition and also happens to be of the right age: in fact, from Hofmansstahl’s libretto it appears that Ochs is only a little older than Marschallin and not the old man that we have often seen on stage. In the roles of Octavian and Sophie we find singers Sophie Koch and Christiane Karg, while the performer to play Marshallin is Krassimira Stoyanova.
