Salzburg Festival Blog 15 (6 Aug)

A morning spent marking orchestral parts and then a delightful lunch at the home of Mike and Ute Schlie in Hallwang. There I meet the fine director Johannes Schaaf,who is in Salzburg for take part in cultural forum on the Festival for O1(The impressive Austrian classical radio station). Afterwards I have a restful afternoon in anticipation of this evening’s ‘Theodora’ performance. Possibly our best yet and the public response is overwhelming. There is a truly Festival-like atmosphere afterwards at Triangel where performers from both Theodora and the impressive Nono opera ‘Gran sole’ have congregated. I leave (relatively) early as a day of study and part-marking beckons.
