Slowly but surely, summer in the Gastein Valley is approaching with giant strides. While the thermometer is skyrocketing more and more, the long concert is about to begin: Summer in Bad Hofgastein is already in the starting blocks. Classical, folk and danceable tones line the wide valley from May to October with small and large highlights in series. This year, too, a top-class program awaits visitors from near and far.
Open air concert with Juan Diego Flórez
A long-cherished dream will finally come true not only for classical music fans on July 21, 2018 when the Peruvian-Austrian opera singer Juan Diego Flórez comes to the Gastein Valley for an open-air concert. Flórez is considered to be the leading tenore di grazia, perhaps the most difficult and rarest style of singing in the opera world. Since 1996 he has appeared regularly on the world’s largest opera stages, such as La Scala in Milan, the Semperoper or the Vienna State Opera. In the Gastein Valley he performs highlights from his 46 opera repertoire. Tickets are in great demand and available now.
More classic highlights
The motto of the concert: Summer 2018 in Bad Hofgastein is “Classics rethought”. With the Philharmonie Salzburg under the artistic direction of conductor Elisabeth Fuchs, a new ensemble could be won for this year’s Gastein summer resort. At the opening concert “Swing in the Spring” on May 25th in the Alpenarena Bad Hofgastein this will be a rendezvous. Particular attention is also paid to the new family concert series. This is designed to be interactive and accompanied by captivating stories for young and old.
Friends of folk music and dance music will not miss out either this year. Around the summer solstice, local and international groups and bands get together for a hearty rendezvous. The comradeship band and the traditional costume band give regular concerts in the center of Hofgastein from May to October. This year’s concert: Summer is rounded off by Montana: Musica.
