It is the season’s sparkling highlight: the Midsummer Night’s Gala at the Wolkenturm with international stars in the open air! 2017 sees Russian vocalists Aida Garifullina and Dmitri Hvorostovsky adding Grafenegg to the roll-call of leading operatic venues around the world where their great voices have been heard. The young soprano Garifullina is in the ensemble of the Vienna State Opera and baritone Hvorostovsky sang at the Red Square concert in Moscow in 2013. The third soloist is Georgian star pianist Khatia Buniatishvili, who won an ECHO-Klassik award in 2012 as Best New Female Artist of the Year.
Needless to say, the Gala is the event of the year for Yutaka Sado and his Tonkunstler Orchestra.
